Our Collection

Our collection includes tools, machines, taps and dies, and archival materials revealing the social history of our industrial heritage. Artifacts from dozens of companies, representing nearly every Franklin County town, as well as Athol and several other neighboring towns, make our collection a rich source  for understanding our past and putting our present into context.

We also hold an extensive collection of photographs connecting our industrial history to many themes, reminding us that this story of the past is the story of people!
