Cleaning Tip of the Day
Some Interesting Facts About Fall River:
The City of Fall River is an industrial community on the banks of the Taunton River in Bristol County with a long and fascinating history.† The first settler of Fall River†was Benjamin Church, a hero of King Philip's war, who built a sawmill in 1690.††Fall River's geography determined its destiny; as historians have pointed out, the significant fact about Fall River is that it had water power and port facilities together, making it both a transfer point for passenger and freight traffic to New York and the site of intense industrial development.††The diverse residential population of Fall River†is made up of immigrants from Great Britain, Portugal and Canada drawn to the mill jobs available in the city.

Fall River's industrial history began in 1811 when Colonel Joseph Durfee opened the Globe Manufactory.† By 1830,†Fall River†had seven textile mills, a steamboat to Providence and Newport and its own newspaper.† A staggering population and industrial boom made Fall River one of the textile capitals of the nation with more than 100 cotton mills housing four million spindles, employing more than 30,000 people, and generating a weekly payroll of over $500,000.††Fall River†boasted an international market and 130,000 people when its prosperity peaked during the First World War.† This was a closely knit industrial complex in which raw materials came into the port of Fall River to be processed into manufactured goods and then shipped out again from the port.

When textile manufacturing began moving south in the 1920's,†Fall River's decline began, accelerating during a devastating fire, which destroyed the central business district, and the Depression certainly didn't help matters much.† By 1930†Fall River†declared bankruptcy and†having learned its lesson from that, the modern city of Fall River maintains a highly diversified industrial profile with chemical operations, electrical and food products along with the garment and textile industries.††Fall†River†also maximizes tourism with the largest factory outlet district in New England and a World War II memorial which opens a variety of American warships to visitors at the State Pier in Fall River.† The city of Fall River†retains a variety of handsome historic public buildings.

Fall River is located in Southeastern Massachusetts and is bordered by Somerset on the northwest; Freetown on the north and northeast; Dartmouth on the southwest; Westport on the south; Tiverton, Rhode Island, on the southwest; and Mount Hope Bay and the mouth of the Taunton River on the west.† Fall River is 50 miles south of Boston.† The Cleaning Lady, Inc., is pleased to provide house cleaning, office cleaning, maid and janitorial services to the residents and businesses of Fall River, MA.
