The River Runs Through Us:
Life Along the Mill River
a presentation by students in the course Public History Workshop
University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in partnership with
the Mill River Greenway Initiative
Monday, April 27, 2015, 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Since January 2015, a team of University of Massachusetts Amherst students have been developing a six-panel outdoor exhibit on the history of the Mill River proposed for a site near the River in Florence. The exhibit explores the history of agriculture, industry, flood control, and environmental contamination and clean-up, telling stories of the diverse peoples and dramatic events that shaped the river over the past four centuries. The students will be presenting a draft version of their project to the public for comments on Monday evening April 27 at Historic Northampton beginning at 7:30 P.M. Please come, offer your feedback, and share your ideas.
