The museum’s mission is to celebrate our industrial heritage through preserving, collecting and educating the public, with emphasis on Franklin County and Athol, Massachusetts. At the heart of it is the story—the people who created and lived this history, and how their work and lives can inform ours today. The museum is housed in the former Newell Snow factory building overlooking the Green River.
The collection includes tools, machines, taps and dies and archival materials revealing the social history of the region’s industrial heritage. Artifacts from dozens of companies, representing nearly every Franklin County town, as well as Athol and several other neighboring towns, make the collection a rich source for understanding our past and putting our present into context.
