Stafford Mills and Their History


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

On Tuesday, April 10, join us at the Stafford Community Center at 7:00 p.m. to hear Becky Kraussmann's presentation on the history of Stafford Mills.

In 1820, Stafford was an active town known for its iron industry and mineral springs. But, by the 1840s the industrial revolution had hit Stafford and mills started popping up along the rivers in the valleys where the rivers met. Villages grew around these mills and the population began to grow. Stafford was heading in an exciting and new direction. Learn more about the individual mills and the villages that grew around them.

The meeting will be held at the Stafford Community Center, 3 Buckley Highway, Stafford Springs. There will be a short business meeting before the presentation. This event is free and the public is invited to attend. Please contact us with any questions at staffordhistorical@gmail.com or on our Facebook page Stafford Historical Society - Stafford, CT.
