Tsongas Industrial History Center
A partnership between UMass Lowell and Lowell National Historical Park, the Tsongas Industrial History Center educates students and teachers from across the country about the American Industrial Revolution through hands-on activities and tours of the sites where history and science happened. The center inspires connections with and understanding about America's industrial past, present and future using Lowell's unique resources.
From 2006-2013, the Tsongas Industrial History Center hosted summer teacher workshops called Inventing America: Lowell and the Industrial Revolution, through the National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History and Culture program. In 2013, the TIHC received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to establish a website for teachers as part of the NEH Digital Dissemination project.
