About Us

At the Institute for Industrial Art and History (IIAH), we believe that our rich industrial and scientific heritage should be celebrated and explored. In a fast-paced world it’s easy to forget how we got to where we are today. The industrial revolution changed how we manufactured goods and changed the landscape with factories and railroads that built today's cities and towns. These industrial machines, tools, and objects are remarkable historical artifacts that we choose to both preserve, display, and use to educate the public.

Community Outreach

Empowering young audiences to discover new things

Institute for Industrial Art and History is dedicated to putting our community first. We explore both the early and late technology advancements of the industrial revolution tying in our neighboring communities' mills and the importance they played in history. Our communities are import to us and believe everyone should have access to our past. That's why all our events are free and welcoming to all!
