Woven in Time: 11,000 Years at Amoskeag Falls
This exhibit tells the story of Manchester and the people who have lived and worked here. The story starts with the native peoples who fished at Amoskeag Falls 11,000 years ago and continues with displays on the area’s early farmers and lumbermen, and the beginnings of industry in the area. The exhibit then focuses on the story of the development of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company. This powerful corporation would become one of the largest textile producing companies in the world, employing over 17,000 people, including immigrants from many countries. The company’s vast brick millyard still dominates the city-scape today.
The Museum’s Henry M. Fuller State Theatre Gallery features rotating exhibitions on a variety of topics. The Millyard Museum also features the Discovery Gallery, a multi-purpose space used for school groups, family programs, lectures, temporary exhibits and other activities.
