The Boott Cotton Mills clock tower stands as a symbol of the American Industrial Revolution and the shift from farm life to factory work. The weathervane, as an architectural ornament, sits above the historical bell tower and creates the highest point in the mill complex. This functioning weather instrument uses a symbolic shuttle to show the wind's direction and represents thousands of women and men who reported to work every day in Lowell's textile factories. It is capped by a gilded acorn, a symbol of health, strength, and gain through industry.
