City Overview

Columbia Street

Nearly 100 years ago, the City of Fall River secured its place as the textile capital of the world. Massive granite mill buildings stretched along the Quequechan and Taunton rivers, and the waters powered the city into an industrial giant. With an abundance of jobs, the city attracted talented workers from around the globe. Elegant Victorian mansions and the Fall River Line steamships became tangible symbols of Fall River’s great wealth and prosperity.

Today, the City of Fall River is embarking on a second renaissance. Efforts to diversify the city’s economy are proving successful, leading to new growth in the manufacturing industry and service, life science and technology sectors. While gleaming new buildings are the mainstays of Fall River’s thriving business parks, the historic mills continue to provide employment opportunities for thousands of the city’s 89,000 residents.
