A History of the Slate Belt Textile Industry Panel


Join the Slate Belt Heritage Center, on August 13, for a virtual presentation panel for the center's new book on their facebook page.

Marc Blau, Karen Brewer, Dan Carrescia and Fred Derea will be presenting the Center's new book, "A History of the Slate Belt Textile Industry." The four authors will be talking about the research and hard work that went into the creation of this book, including having to discover where all of the mills were located. The book includes maps of all of the Slate Belt communities and the locations of all of the mills. The authors will also show viewers some of the many items in the textile display currently at the Center as well as a sneak preview of the new textile room.
