Hudson Mohawk Industrial Gateway
"Troy is widely regarded as one of the birthplaces of the American industrial revolution. HMIG, at our headquarters in the Burden Iron Works Museum, commemorates that rich and diverse history that made Troy one of the wealthiest cities in America. We celebrate, among others, the female-invented detachable collar and cuff; the first machine made horseshoes in history; the bulk of the iron in the USS Monitor; the first Bessemer steel in the US; over 100,000 bells; cast iron stoves; steam engines; precision instrumentation; rototillers, and so much more."
