For centuries, the flag has meant many things to many people. Flags are waved in times of war, times of peace, as rallies of protest, display of mourning, and joyous celebrations. A symbol of an ideal, a pursuit, a larger picture, the flag has always represented a notion of unity. Regardless of race, religion or social standing, the flag evokes a feeling in the hearts of all who lie under its protection.
Join us as we examine flags from Manchester's history and learn the stories that these flags tell.  
On exhibit through February 24  
Manchester Gift Ideas
Looking for some last-minute Christmas gift ideas?  The Millyard Museum Shop has a variety of Manchester-themed gifts, including our collectible ornaments.   
Each year the Manchester Historic Association produces an original, limited edition brass-plated ornament that celebrates Manchester's history. These unique, detailed ornaments are handcrafted in the United States by the same company that makes the annual White House Holiday Ornament. They make perfect Christmas tree decorations or gifts for the holidays and for many other occasions.  Each comes in a decorative box.      
The 2017 ornament pays tribute to the history of the Amoskeag Millyard, constructed by the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company between 1838 and 1915, spanning both the east and west banks of the Merrimack River for more than a mile in the center of Manchester.  The ornament features the Jefferson Mill clock tower, one of the most prominent features of the Millyard, constructed in 1886.
