The Windham Textile and History Museum is a museum in Willimantic, Connecticut, in the New England region of the United States. It is currently located in Main St.[1]


Its main focus is the Willimantic Linen Company's Willimantic mill, later purchased by the American Thread Company and closed in 1985.[2] The museum is located in the former company store building.[3]

The museum features the Brooke Shannon Antique Sewing Machine Room, which is a room which features replica sewing machines from the factory in the late-19th century.[4][5] Other exhibits include a re-creation of the manager's office, a replica of the boarding houses in the 1880s.[6] A tour of the mill property is part of the tour, but access inside in not included due to most of the mill being on private property.[7] There are many other displays that feature what was life like during the turn of the century at the mill in Willimantic.[8]
