The Hop River Warp Company was begun by Willimantic's William Jillson and closed in 1891. We could use some help, though, in pinpointing the company's exact location. Its location is sometimes said to be Columbia, other times, Willimantic. The Hop River flows into the Willimantic River in the area (today) where the RT6 expressway crosses the Columbia-Willimantic line. Pic of the Week
