Linthead Legacy

Long before rockets were part of the skyscape of Huntsville, the water towers and smokestacks of its textile mills were the monoliths of industrial progress. Workers were often called “lintheads” by the city folk, a derogatory term which became a moniker of pride. This program will tell the story of the people who worked at Dallas, Lincoln, Merrimack and Lowe Mills, who grew up in their villages and went to mill schools.

This program is open to the public.
