OPEN HOUSE AND FAMILY DAY, Sunday October 19, 1-4 pm at the Museum of Our Industrial Heritage, 2 Mead Street in Greenfield.

Visit the museum in the historic Newell Snow factory building on the banks of the Green River in Greenfield (next to Berkshire Gas and across from the Textile Co.) Take a walk on museum grounds and see the hidden Mill Street dam. In the exhibit hall, see tools and products manufactured in Franklin County from the 1800s through the 20th century, with a special exhibit on the history of Franklin County paper mills. Join in activities to identify hand tools manufactured in the area, and use them, too (with supervision). Your donations to this free event will support museum programming. For more information, call 413-336-8275   or email info@industrialhistory.org

Wells Bros. Co. 100From early mills dotting the rural landscape in the 18th century, to the hydro power dams and factories of the 19th century, to the tap and die industry of the 20th century, Franklin County has  played a unique role in regional, national and world history.

Our collection of artifacts, archival material, and historic photos represents nearly all of Franklin County’s 26 towns and the neighboring town of Athol. The Museum of Our Industrial Heritage presents these tangible reminders of the past by focusing on the spirit of innovation that fueled each era—and explores how that same spirit might shape our future.
