Merrimack Mills and Boarding-Houses
This engraving of the “Merrimack Mills and Boarding-Houses” depicts the everyday scene of the street on which Merrimack Mill was located. Within the image the boardinghouses are lined up in a neat row leading to the Merrimack Mill located at the end of the street. These boardinghouses were solely occupied by mill girls during their employment with Merrimack Mill. It was crucial to keep the boardinghouses close to the mills to ensure the safety of the girls, and also to better regulate their environments and routines.
