The Windham Textile and History Museum (the Mill Museum of Connecticut) envisions being a place where the experiences, lives, struggles, triumphs, tragedies, and legacies of the children, women, and men who came to the textile towns of Connecticut to labor in the mills, open businesses, own and manage factories, pursue the textile arts, educate themselves and others in the textile arts and sciences, raise families, build cities, and create communities will be remembered, so that those who live in the post-industrial present may better understand and influence the world we have inherited from them.
