The Dyke Mill was originally the Richardson & Dike (later J. Dike & Sons) chair and sofa factory, built in the 1840s. In 1909, the Dyke Mill incorporated itself with the intention of creating an Arts & Crafts outpost in Montague. Its utopian ideals are evident in the text, particularly visible in its emphasis on rural life as a cure for societal ills. Probably its most famous product was Carl Rollins, who founded the Montague Press, a precursor to Dyke Mill. Rollins went on to run Yale University Press, which by mid-century was one of the most respected presses in the country. Dyke Mill press continued publishing until some point after the 1950s.
