American Textile History Museum presents Americas story through the art, science and history of its textiles.
Caroline Stevens Rogers, a member of a venerable textile industry family and a handweaver and dyer in her own right, founded the Merrimack Valley Textile Museum in North Andover, Massachusetts in 1960.
During its first thirty years, the Museum documented the woolen, cotton, flax and silk industries in New England and beyond through its collections of pre-industrial tools, powered industrial era machinery, flat textiles and the rich collections of its Osborne Library.
