History: J. Parlin Wyman

Wyman was a beer manufacturer on Front Street in Waterville. It appears that he began his operation in 1879. He then moved to 3 Mechanic Square and continued brewing for a time. After 1886, he no longer advertised beer sales, as he is listed only as a soda manufacturer after that point.
