Telling the story of work and community in Lewiston-Auburn
Museum L-A, located at 35 Canal Street in the historic Bates Mill #1, tells the story of work and community in the "Twin Cities" of Lewiston and Auburn. Discover the rich heritage of labor, industrial commitment, community expansion and cultural influences through engaging exhibits and special programs encouraging family fun and learning across generations. Current activities focus on the local textile, shoe and brickmaking industries in Lewiston and Auburn and the people who worked in them. Explore the expanded Museum Shop that offers gifts ranging from the historical to the whimsical.
Current Exhibit: “Structures & Patterns: The Remnants of Our Work” is a new thought provoking exhibit in collaboration with guest curator Janice L. Moore, fine arts painter, and photographer, Mark Marchesi. The exhibit includes works by these artists and incorporates authentic mill artifacts from the Museum L-A collections.
