Places Where Women Made History

11 of 17

Lowell, Massachusetts

In the 1830s, the mills in the booming industrial town of Lowell employed women almost exclusively. Thousands of young women left their farm homes to live together at Lowell boardinghouses and work in the mills. Today, tours and exhibits and the Lowell National Historic Park bring the contributions of these women to the Industrial Revolution back to life.
