Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 2, 1978):
With over 35 buildings on approximately 13 acres of land, this district incorporates most of the extant factory buildings of the Clark Thread Company, the world's foremost maker of cotton thread in the late 19th to early 20th century.

A lack of routine maintenance has led to the general deterioration of the buildings within this district. Windows are either missing, blocked in, or in need of major repairs; brick walls require masonry repairs, repointing, and graffiti removal. In addition, six company buildings are outside the present NHL boundary.

Recommendation/Change since last report:
Funding is needed to revise the NHL nomination to encompass the excluded structures and undertake a thorough rehabilitation of all the buildings.
