The 2015 Snow Ball Success!!!
The Mill Museum would like to thank all the patrons, guests, sponsors, and volunteers who attended this year’s Snow Ball. We could not have done it without you.
Photos from the 2015 Snow Ball are here.
All proceeds will benefit the Windham Textile and History Museum.
2014 Annual Appeal
The Windham Textile & History Museum (the Mill Museum) is conducting its annual appeal. If you have already contributed, thank you very much; we greatly appreciate your support. If you have not yet contributed, please consider doing so. The Museum has incurred some heavy expenses this year. Some (painting the main building) were planned. Others (an unexpected breakdown in our five-year-old sprinkler system) were completely unexpected. We really need your help. Please donate what you can. Every contribution helps.
The Mill Museum would like to renovate/restore/repair these historic windows which are all in need of re-caulking, scraping, repainting, rope and weight replacement and in some case replacement of cracked glass.
Can you help us restore the 19 windows of the two floors of Dugan?
New J. Alden Weir Video
In the late 1800s and early 1900s Weir lived in Windham Center (and elsewhere), married into a Windham Center family, and painted many Windham/Willimantic scenes. The newest addition to the site is a video documentary called “Love at First Sight: J. Alden Weir in Windham CT, 1882-1919.”
