Recipient of the 2017 CT CREW Best Specialty Project Award, The former Talcott Brothers Woolen Mill is the centerpiece of the Talcottville Historic District, a well preserved manufacturing village that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After a fire destroyed an earlier cotton spinning factory on the site, the Talcott Brothers built a wool textile mill in 1870. While the mill complex grew and evolved into a 15 building complex, most constructed between 1870 and 1920, it retains much of its character as a planned industrial community. This project is transforming the property into market-rate family housing, while restoring key components such as the mill’s bell tower and smoke stack.
