As a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization Slater Mill Museum operates solely on donations and grant funding. In order to uphold our mission to educate, entertain, and inspire our visitors on the history of Samuel Slater and the Slater Mill, the early American Industrial Revolution and New England history we need your help. We provide numerous educational programs for school children, entertain and educate our visitors through costumed interpretations while preserving this National Historic Landmark for future generations.
