Find out what industries were created throughout Franklin County before, during and after industrialization of the Turners Falls canal. Learn how much industrial activity there once was along the streams and rivers of some of our now-quiet towns and villages and how that activity related to the larger industries in our region. After the presentation, audience members are invited to walk/drive a few blocks to 2 Mead Street for a free tour of the Museum of Our Industrial History Newell Snow Factory.
