CNY History In Pictures: Mill Workers’ Strike of 1910
This week we are looking back at signifcant moments in the history of Central New York and the Mohawk Valley in photos. Today we’re giving you a glimpse of a strike of mill workers in New York Mills.
The Village of New York Mills, of course, takes its name from the large textile mills that populated the community. The labor revolt of the early 1900s struck here when mill workers, mainly of Polish descent, were seeking better wages and working conditions.
The final picture appears to be the Mill that once stood along Main Street where the New York Mills Senior Center is today.
