Wauregan-Quinebaug Company, Wauregan

Wauregan Mills was established in the 1850s and merged in 1932 with Quinebaug Mills of Danielson, Connecticut. The Wauregan-Quinebaug Company was best known for its production of fine quality cotton goods. Flooding from back-to-back hurricanes in 1955 destroyed the buildings and equipment; the company found it too difficult to get back in business and effectively closed down in 1958.

The photographs show women working in the mills in the 1920s.

For more information about the Wauregan-Quinebaug Company Records, see the finding aid to the materials.
