In 1880, eight men from England came To
start a lace mill and in 1889 the American
Lace & Manufacturing Co. began. In 1918 it
merged with Plymouth Mills Corp. At its peak
the mill employed 1,000 people and produced
some of the nation's finest quality lace
curtains and tablecloths. During WWII the
mill converted to war production
producing mosquito-netting, parachute
fabric, herringbone twill for G.I. fatigues,
gun covers and iridescent tapes to mark
mine fields. The mill was abandoned in 1954
and renovated for offices and small
industry. Much of it was destroyed by fire in
January 1972. After years of lying vacant,
the mill was torn down, despite efforts to
restore and repurpose it.
