History

Around 1820 Hazard renamed the nearby industrial village to Wakefield after the town and family of the same name in England, who were friends of his. His son, Frederick R. Prior to this, the village had been called McCoon's Mill for the snuff mill that by the 1820s had been converted to manufacturing woolen textiles. In 1814, Hazard was also one of the first American manufacturers to employ narrow-width power looms, and also was the first woolen manufacturer to combine all his manufacturing processes under one roof. Rowland Hazard II (1829-1898) was an initial investor in the Solvay Process Company and its first president.
