Manchester Residents

Mill Worker Brick Housing

A century ago, Manchester was home to the largest textile manufacturer in the world. Nearly half of the community worked in our Millyard, making everything from gingham dresses to the first pair of Levi’s jeans.

Since then, Manchester has transitioned from an era of textiles to one of technology and higher education. We have continually found new opportunities to push us to do better for ourselves and future generations.

In the last few years, the City of Manchester has made significant investments in our community that have provided large economic booms for our city. From adding more destinations to and from the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport to worldwide acts performing at the SNHU Arena, Palace Theatre and Rex Theatre, Manchester is on the rise.

Together, we will continue to make our city a welcoming place that embraces our history and diversity.
