Kinleith Paper Co was incorporated in 1899. It was located below the Burgoyne Bridge on the east bank of the 12 Mile Creek.
On August 13, 1904 a rag boiler blew up. This destroyed the building at the far front right of the image. Kinleith remained in business until the late 1920s.
In 1939 it became the site of Lincoln Foundry. The site remained until it was demolished for the 406 project.
