The Windham Textile and History Museum will sponsor the sixth installment in its Mill of the Month Program. July’s participants, led by local historian Bev York, will visit Mill sites along the Willimantic River located in Mansfield, CT. Participants will also visit mill sites in Merrow, makers of stockinette material and Eagleville, which made cotton thread and gun parts during the Civil War. Both mills are gone, but parts of the villages and dams still remain. Registration is suggested by calling 860-456-2178.
