Local artist A. N. Wyeth has painted a new watercolor of the historic Willimantic Falls mill site, depicting the old stone flood gate that once controlled water flow from the Willimantic River into the head race for the old Number Three Mill, demolished in the 1920s. Prints are $50 each. They are only available from the Windham Textile and History Museum. For more information about this and other A. N. Wyeth prints, along with an order form, click *here*.
