Rochester — David and Raymond St. Jacques, owners of the Hayden Manufacturing Company in West Wareham will be the speakers at the April meeting on Wednesday, April 19, at 7 p.m. at the Rochester Historical Society, 355 County Road, Rochester.

The Hayden Manufacturing Co. has been part of the cranberry industry since 1892, and it has been family owned since 1927. The Hadyen separator was invented by Linthrop Hayden of South Carver, who established the company.  This separator revolutionized the cranberry industry.

Linthrop's grandsons, David and Raymond, now own the company and have expanded their cranberry equipment, welding services and more by establishing an antiques store at their Carver Road, West Wareham building.

Learn about the history of this local industry and its long lasting effect on the cranberry industry. All are welcome to attend.
