Overview


In the first volume, Killingly revealed the initial manufacturing emphasis in the town's villages. Killingly Revisited illustrates how the town survived after losing most of the textile industry, as it moved South, by actively seeking diversified commercial businesses. Within these pages, the town's fascinating past is displayed as newly acquired vintage views are coupled with information recently uncovered from the Killingly Historical and Genealogical Society's newspaper archives and other reference materials. In celebration of 300 years as

an incorporated Connecticut town, the society is sharing photographs of Killingly's mills, businesses, buildings, churches, schools, and

cemeteries. There have been losses from devastating fires that changed the face of Main Street. New streets and roads were added as modes of transportation changed. There are also new views of citizens at work and play.
