Campaign: What's your favorite idea for Huntsville?

CREATE A COTTON TEXTILE MILL MUSEUM

I started with a dream back in the 1990's, while I watched, documented and took photos of the demolition of the old Merrimack Textile Mill. We still have the original mill village located in West Huntsville. I envision a trolley ride, following the cotton from the RailRoad Depot to Lowe Mill then on to J.C. Brown (A building that should be turned into a Museum and listed on the National Historical Registar).

I have written many stories about the families who worked in the mills and about Huntsville history in general.Huntsville is a wonderful city with a colorful past that should be remembered for generations to come. I have a plan, just need the help to make this dream come true.
