The Millyard Museum – at 200 Bedford Street in downtown Manchester – is rich in history. 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 here.

The exhibit continues with the story of the development of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company one of the largest textile-producing companies in the world, employing over 17,000 people. The company’s vast brick millyard still dominates Manchester’s cityscape today.

All exhibits are included in the price of admission as well as a special talk and book signing at 2:15 by Aurore Eaton, former Executive Director of the Manchester Historic Association and the author of the Looking Back newspaper column that appears weekly in the New Hampshire Union Leader.

The new book by Aurore Eaton – The Amoskeag Manufacturing Company: A History of Enterprise on the Merrimack River – tells the story of the powerful corporation that created the vast millyard that stretches over a mile along the banks of the Merrimack in Manchester. Published by History Press, the book includes numerous photographs from the Manchester Historic Association collections.

Discounted adult admission on September 19 is $5 and those 62 and over pay just $3. Admission is free to those 12 and younger. AARP members must show their membership card to receive the discount.
