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, the tours and exhibits and Lowell National Historic Park bring to life the contributions of these women to the Industrial Revolution.
