Museum L-A presents history in context by connecting the past to today. In the years following the closing of the textile mills and shoe shops, the cities of Lewiston and Auburn were feeling the pain. Through the recording of oral histories, the Museum preserves the memories of those who journeyed here from Canada, Ireland, Russia, and Greece. Visitors are invited to participate and preserve the heritage of the Lewiston-Auburn region by sharing stories and memories. Museum L-A is now playing an important part in the current economic and cultural revival – as an everlasting tribute to the manufacturing heritage of the area and its workers.
