Slater Mill


As the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution, Slater Mill holds a unique and important position in American history. It marks the time and place where modern America began, where an agrarian society set forth on a path that would lead to massive social, technological and economic change, creating opportunity for millions of people in a country that would come to lead the world. The story of Slater Mill is the story of innovation, of labor, of woman’s rights, of immigration and assimilation as well as the story of industry. Slater Mill’s relevance as a museum is directly linked to how it engages the community today. It is critically important to engage young people, in particular, in becoming knowledgeable about the conditions under which our prevalent culture was developed. It is culturally, educationally and historically important for people of all ages and origins to be able to come, see, touch, learn and be inspired by Slater Mill.
