Celebrating 25 years and looking forward at the Tsongas Industrial History Center

We welcome your contributions toward our two endowment funds which support the Tsongas Industrial History Center.

Learn more about the Tsongas Industrial History Center by watching our videos on our YouTube page. UMass Lowell students helped us create a video for our 25th anniversary in 2016. The video presents a good overview of our history, our impact, and how we are looking forward to the next 25 years.
