Ranger Walkabouts: Whitinsville: The Engineered Landscape – Part 2, Whitinsville, Mass.

Thursday, Aug 29, 2013 6:30p

Join a National Park Service ranger to explore the village of Whitinsville. Learn about the role of the Whitin family in creating a textile machine empire. You will hear about their efforts to engineer the Mumford River and its tributaries to provide the water needed to run the massive Machine Works and textile mills, as well as provide for the water needs of the workers. Whitinsville is one of the finest examples of a paternalistic mill village in the Blackstone Valley.
