Suffolk Mill Turbine Exhibit
Located at 660 Suffolk Street, alongside the Northern Canal, the water turbine at Suffolk Mill is a still-operating example of how power was generated for 19th century cotton mills. Scores of turbines like this one served as the rumbling heart of local factories, and were an important innovation engineered in Lowell. The turbine pit and transmission machinery date back to 1853.
Suffolk Mill is accessible by guided tour only.
