The mills were built beginning in 1863 by Robert Knight and Benjamin Knight (B.B. & R. Knight Company). The mills produced uniforms for Union soldiers during the American Civil War. In 1920 Webster Knight sold Fruit of the Loom and the Pontiac Mills. The textile industry in New England began declining shortly after this period. The mills were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
