Now a part of the Lowell National Historical Park, the Boott Cotton Mill was just one of many buildings housing extensive cotton weaving machinery. Built in 1835, it was one of the foundations of the industrial revolution in New England. Sited alongside a canal which provided the power to run the machines, today it is a picturesque museum where one can get a taste of what mill life was like.
