The Historic Preservation Awards program recognizes and supports the efforts of individuals, businesses and organizations who have made significant contributions to the preservation of buildings, neighborhoods, traditions and other historic resources in the Queen City.  Over 27 years, more than 230 recipients have been recognized for a wide variety of preservation efforts in 40 different categories. The annual event has become the MHA’s single largest fundraiser to support its non-profit mission of collecting, preserving and sharing the history of Manchester.

Pandora sign 1981 cropIn 1940 Pandora Industries relocated to Manchester from New York City, and for the next several decades became one of the major employers of the Queen City with as many as 1,000 people working for the company. Pandora maintained itself as a major sweater and sportswear maker, making as many as 60,000 sweaters per week, and was one of the last textile manufacturers to operate in Manchester's Millyard.

This new exhibit at the Millyard Museum showcases a recently acquired collection of Pandora sweaters and designs as well as part of the iconic sign that stood atop the Pandora Mill building for approximately 50 years.

"Pandora by Design: Sweaters from the Millyard" will be on display in the Millyard Museum's State Theater Gallery through August 31, 2021
A special exhibit reception will be held later this spring.
