Fall River History

 

The men and women slaving away in the mills, the rich history of Durfee Basketball, and the textile plants that produced finished goods for people all over the world are some examples of Fall River’s hard working and celebrated past. The city’s history is rich and much of it was built on the backs of it’s hard working residents. We are also known for the famous and successful Fall River Marksmen soccer team of the 1920’s and early 1930’s.

    Fall River is a great city. There is so much to love about living here. As with anywhere, there are always people who cause issues, have problems and make problems for others. Those who dont care about keeping the city clean or teaching and raising respect and acceptance in their families and towards others. You will find those issues in ANY city. However, when those who care rise up and work toward positive living and loving of your neighbors, great things happen and you have less of the issues. Ive lived her my whole life and its home!!!
