Windham Historically And Today

Known as "The Thread City", Windham is a town of many contrasts, from the colonial appeal of Windham Center, site of the town's founding, to the Victorian grandeur of the section of town known as Willimantic. As a matter of fact, Windham has more privately owned Victorian-style homes than San Francisco does. Proud of its past, as its cautious restoration of Willimantic testifies. However, Windham also looks forward to its future, as witnessed by its watchful approach to land use and zoning.

Windham provides a rural charm as well as all the amenities of a city. Sawmills and gristmills and later thread and textile industries benefited from the Willimantic River's power in Willimantic. Less than an hour's drive from Connecticut and Rhode Island beaches. Windham is also within easy driving distance to northern New England ski resorts, lakes, streams, hiking, fishing, hunting and camping areas.
