The Millyard Museum is operated by the Manchester Historic Association and is housed in Mill No. 3 at the corner of Commercial and Pleasant Streets in the historic Amoskeag Millyard. The Museum features the permanent exhibit, Woven in Time: 11,000 Years at Amoskeag Falls, that tells the story of Manchester and the people who have lived and worked here. The story starts with the native peoples who fished at Amoskeag Falls for thousands of years. It continues with displays on the area's early farmers and lumbermen, and the beginnings of industry in the area. The exhibit continues with the story of the development of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company. This powerful corporation would become one of the largest textile producing company in the world, employing over 17,000 people, including immigrants from many countries. The company's vast brick millyard still dominates the cityscape today. The story continues into the 20th century, as innovative businesses flourish in the city and new groups of immigrants come to Manchester to start new lives.
