The town was greatly impacted by the revenue and income generated by the company, and had as many as 250 workers who lived either in town or in several communities around the town. Because of the large-scale operations, a narrow gauge railway foot gauge railway, the Monson Railroad, was created and up to four locomotives were used in the transportation of the slate, as well as transporting passengers to the larger Bangor and Aroostook Railroad in Abbot. The antlers have been stolen and replaced several times, but currently they exist in the approximate location on a pole after leaving the town of Abbot, Maine In 1870, slate was discovered by a resident who had immigrated from Wales, while driving his horse in the countryside of the town. The slating industry began to decline after World War I and most of the operations effectively ended. In 1945, after a fire at Greenville, Maine Moosehead Woodcrafters resulted in the company buying a former slate company's buildings that created a Moosehead Manufacturing, which produced furniture products for over 60 years until its recent closure in 2007.
