A textile history museum in Connecticut

Windham Light Parade. Fri. Nov. 25, 5:40 p.m. Parade participants will gather at Memorial Park; the march begins at 6:00 p.m. and heads down Main St. to Jilson Square to light Windham's community holiday tree. The Mill Museum will join in the fun with a contingent. Volunteers are sought to swell our ranks. Contact the Mill Museum at director@millmuseum.org or (860) 456-2178 by 3 p.m. on Nov.25.  Wear a light up necklace, hat, or both (or whatever you want) and join the Mill Museum's contingent in the parade!

Located in the historic former headquarters of the American Thread Company, the Mill Museum houses a museum, historical society, library, and archive. Through its exhibits, programs, activities, and collections, the Museum preserves and interprets the history of textiles, the textile industry, and textile communities in Connecticut.
