Better-known today for its successful artist and craftsman studios, Salmon Falls village is well-known to the local preservation community as an integral model of a Boston-owned factory town. The tour will weave through one of the most intact 19th century mill villages in New England. Participants will visit the village of the Salmon Falls Manufacturing Company and explore its mill yard, related workers housing, and its religious and commercial buildings. The tour will explore the history and development of the village, how the mills functioned, and the communities of immigrants employed by the company.

He is the vice president of the New England chapter of the Vernacular Architectural Forum and serves on Strawbery Banke Museum’s National Council.
