Rising Paper Mill is a historic factory at 295 Park Street North, in the Housatonic village of Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

The mill was built in about 1873 for H.D. Cone, and was at the time the largest paper factory in the world. Stone for its foundations was quarried at nearby Monument Mountain.[2] It was listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]

In 2008, the facility was purchased by Hazen Paper, which announced plans to manufacture multi-ply laminated paper for packaging.[3]
