Formerly, the Gardiner Hall Jr. Company’s Packing and Shipping Building, the Packing House, from 1860 to 1954, produced fine cotton threads that grew to national and international acclaim. The Hall Company played a significant role in the industrialization and development of the region, and in 1919 the Town of Willington adopted the spool design as its corporate seal. The impact and benevolence of the Company and the Hall family is present to this day through the local school, churches, and grants offered by the Hall Foundation.

The original Packing and Shipping Building, Dye and Bleach House, and six other structures and property that now comprise The Mill Works, were purchased in 1962 by Tom and Irma Bucking. The Packing House at The Mill Works, is currently operated by Thomas D. Buccino, Jr. (Director) as a historic venue for performance and events.
