Cosmos Cotton, formerly the Yarmouth Duck & Yarn Co., operated until 1926 when it was sold to Cosmos Imperial Mills. In 1973 Dominion Textile Inc. took over from Cosmos and operated the business until 1991, when the plant closed. From 1883-1991, the cotton mill was Yarmouth's primary large-scale industry for 108 years.
