On the banks of the Jizera River along Jizera Road you can find the first textile factory in Semily.

In 1857, Franc Schmitt (a textile entrepreneur in České Dubí and Zittau) bought a building that had just been finished by Blaschka & Co. from Hodkovice. The longitudinal building was located on an island and included a factory with a multi-level production building perpendicularly connected to it. When Franc Schmitt bought the compound, he added another four-floor building (No. 328) that ran along the road. He opened a weaving mill and a print shop for wool and cotton fabric in the buildings. By the end of the 19th century, 700 people worked there and the current appearance of the compound dates back to that period. The buildings known as Pětidomí and a block of terraced houses Nos. 357 to 361 were built for workers. In 1925, a power station was built behind a new weir.
Today, it is the seat of JVS - Semilská pekárna bakery.
