Field Trip, Lowell National Historic Park

Would you like to learn about the origins of U.S. industrialization?

Join us for a field trip to Lowell National Historical Park to learn about the origins of industrialization in the U.S.  We’ll visit a working factory, set up much like one in the mid-19th century, tour a boarding house where young women who worked in the mills lived and learn how water power is harnessed to manufacture cloth.  We’ll get a good sense of what the city was like when it was on the leading edge of technology of manufacturing cloth.     


There is no charge for NECC students.

If you are interested contact Professor Steve Russell at srussell@necc.mass.edu.
