Manchester Things to Do: 20 reviews and 21 photos
Good information can be found, especially at the Manchester Historic Association Millyard Museum, (also at Manchester Historical Society and Carpenter Memorial Library) but you have to know enough to know what to look for. Go to the exhibit in Lowell, MA first; the information is gathered into a more coherent whole there, and will give you a good idea of era, architecture, and worker?s culture. The Manchester buildings and information will have some context then. There is considerable historical similarity of the old cities along the Merrimack: Lawrence, Haverhill, Lowell, Nashua, Manchester, and to a lesser extent, Concord, Franklin and Laconia.
Directions: All the above are within a few blocks of the few downtown skyscrapers.
