LT I Central NH, History/Social Studies Day, Dec. 8th, 8-3:30pm, Millyard Museum, Manchester, NH

LT I Central NH will have its History/Social Studies Day on Tuesday, December 8th from 8:00-3:30pm at the Millyard Museum in Manchester, NH. The Millyard Museum is located in Mill #3 at 200 Bedford Street in Manchester.

Directions and a weblink to the host site are below.

The Manchester Historic Association's Millyard Museum is housed in Mill No. 3 at the corner of Commercial and Pleasant Streets. The Museum features the permanent exhibit, Woven in Time: 11,000 Years at Amoskeag Falls, that tells the story of Manchester and the people who have lived and worked there. The story starts with the Native Americans who fished at Amoskeag Falls 11,000 years ago. It continues through the early farmers and craftsmen to the thousands of workers who made the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company the world's largest manufacturer of cotton textiles. The story concludes in the 21st century, as new businesses flourish in the Millyard and new groups of immigrants come to Manchester to live and work.
