David Dale


David Dale, (1739-1806), who was born in Stewarton, founded model industrial communities at Catrine and New Lanark.

The Catrine Mill was destroyed by fire. The Voes, a series of ponds where river water was dammed and released to power the great mill wheels, have been renovated.

Dale was the father-in-law of Robert Owen, who founded New Harmony, Indiana.
