Rice’s Silk Mill - sinds 1887 - 2006
Rice’s Silk Mill
The Rice Silk Mill, located in Pittsfield, has a local connection for me as it lies only a hour away, just over the border in Massachusetts. The company opened its doors in 1887, producing fine silk and mohair textiles. The Rice family owned and operated the facility until the 1980’s when a NYC company bought it. Operations ceased in 2006.
