Three Oaks is home to the Warren Featherbone Factory, which was built over a century ago by Edward Kirk Warren to strip turkey feathers of their quills to use in women's garments of the era, such as corsets, which used "stiffeners".  This replacement for the "whalebone" material was welcomed by the garment industry of the late 19th century.  The factory still stands today and houses the Journeyman Distillery, Acorn Theater and Featherbone Factory.
