MVTM Show: Material World on the Mississippi

Sat, 05 Feb 2022 - Fri, 29 Apr (each Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat)

Time: 1:00PM - 4:00pm

By the turn of the 19th century, there were 10 woolen mills in Almonte, which employed upwards of 120 people, with the Rosamond Woolen Company Mill employing just over 400.  Approximately 1,600 of Almonte's 3,000 residents worked in a textile mill. This exhibition will illustrate this rich history and the manufacturing process, with new interactive and hands-free videos where visitors will see and hear first-hand accounts of the industry from former textile mill workers from the region.
