Tricnit Industries

Using my Amazon.com links supports this blog.

While attending the Temple Harvest Fair, I noticed that the Historical Society was handing out old documents and flyers in exchange for donations. They explained they didn’t have room for all of them and many were duplicates.

Among the issues were copies of a (1773 – 1973) bicentennial magazine for Jaffrey New Hampshire which included these photos of Tricnit Mill.

Tricnit Industries was located on Tenney Road. It burnt to the ground on August 5th, 1978. The town and fire chief were named as defendants in two suits brought by the Aetna Life and Casualty Insurance company. The insurance company claimed that fire department was negligent in their duties which led to the total loss of the property. Later the suit was dropped.

I moved to New Ipswich in 1974 but years before I remember passing through the town and stopping at the outlet store.

Rack
After the fire the dump was the place to go for some interesting items. There were parts of sewing machines, benches and lots and lots of these iron racks. I picked up a truck load and over the years they are handy as outdoor supports, a compost bin, a place to keep my houseplants off the ground during summer and more. Since they stack, I surmise they were inverted and held spools of thread for the looms. They are incredibly durable.
