This would have been the view of a working girl day-dreaming out the window of Slater Mills as she labored over a heavy and dangerous cotton processing machine. According to early American industrial history, Slater Mills is known for its implementation of a new type of work environment which was then different for industry. The Mill allowed families to live on the factory property with the young factory girls. A community and town emerged. Slater Mills is a National Landmark.
