Lowell, Massachusetts

Lowell, Massachusetts has a long industrial and social history associated with the textile trade, particularly concerning the nineteenth century Lowell Mill Girls and their struggle for decent working conditions and equitable pay. The soon-to-be-reopened American Textile History Museum has a comprehensive collection of letters, photos and educational events from the period that paint a grim but noble picture of the times and trials of Lowell mill workers.
