The Everett Mill in Lawrence has been renovated as part of an urban renewal project to save some of the giant, abandoned textile mills along the Merrimack river in Northern Massachusetts. The mills of Lawrence, Massachusetts employed hundreds of thousands of young immigrant women in the early 20th Century under brutal conditions, which were the spark for the historic Bread and Roses Strke of 1912. The National Guard used the Everett Mill as their base during the military occupation of the city.
