During the 19th century, Fall River was the leading textile manufacturing center in the United States. There were over 100 mills operating cotton textile production up until 1920. The historic mills produced items such as sheets, curtains, and apparel, which were shipped all over the world. International competition beginning in the 1950’s made it difficult for Fall River to maintain its status in the textile industry.
Fall River has a number of landmarks including a courthouse, churchs, mill buildings (many of which have been converted for current-day use), and the houses of prominent figures in the community. Other attractions include museums, restaurants, and trails.
The motto of Fall River is “We’ll Try”. This phrase dates back to the aftermath of the Great Fire of 1843, when a fire broke out in the business district, destroying nearly 250 buildings. When left with the daunting thought and task of rebuilding the city, residents at the time stated, “we’ll try”.
