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.

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. is a name you can TRUST!
