New Hampshire Heritage Lecture: The Company That Built Manchester
The creation and growth of Manchester, which today is the largest city in Northern New England, is largely the legacy of one entity: the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company. This lecture, presented by Jeffrey Barraclough, director of operations at the Manchester Historic Association, will look at the origins of Amoskeag, how it developed, and its lasting legacy, which extended long past the company’s closing in 1935. It will also look at the founding of the Manchester Historic Association and how it became a repository for the history of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company. The New Hampshire Heritage Lecture series highlights the stories behind the state’s many historic and cultural attractions. This program is included in the price of admission to the Society.
