Wauregan-Quinebaug Company

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.
