American Thread Co.


Biography: According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, "The American Thread Company (ATC) property is located at 322 Main Street in Windham, Windham County, Connecticut. As early as 1875, the ATC property was used for textile manufacture by the Willimantic Linen Company. From 1898 to 1985, ATC manufactured thread, string, yard, and other textile products on the property, using spinning, twisting, dyeing, and finishing processes. By 1986, ATC had ceased operations on the property, and sold roughly half of the property to Eastern Connecticut Industrial Park Associates, which, subsequently sold a large portion of the property located south of the Willimantic River to private individuals."
