The Windsor Print Works had a long history as a print works. The first facility was built in 1828 by Caleb Turner. The later complex was begun by the firm of Richardson, Freeman, and Co. in 1872, after the year of record profits by the textile industry. The company's fortunes soared during the latter part of the 19th Century, employing 600-800. It weathered some of the storms which swept the industry by making specialty fabrics. In 1891, the company became the Windsor Co. and then, in 1907, the Windsor Print Works. In the 1920's, the company became part of the Consolidated Textile Company.
