About Us​

Webster Museums Incorporated was founded in 2017 as a 501 (c) (3) to foster public knowledge about the history of the American Industrial Revolution in New England. The organization’s first project will be the creation of the Samuel Slater Museum in Webster, a historical museum which will focus on textile manufacturing and the life and work of Samuel Slater (1768 – 1835), called by some the “Father of the American Industrial Revolution.”

In 2017, our organization obtained the use of the old Webster Armory on 31 Ray Street in Webster, MA. Renovations and collection gathering are in process with the goal of opening in 2021.

The vision for the Samuel Slater Experience as told by the founder, designers, and historians.
