The Story
On Sunday, March 25, 1911 at 4:45 p.m., in the Triangle Waste Factory off downtown Manhattan’s Washington Square on, where 500 immigrant workers from Poland, Russia and Italy toil 14-hour days making lady’s dresses, a cigarette is tossed into a bin of fabric craps.

Despite desperate efforts, flames swept through the eighth, ninth and 10th floors. Panic-stricken workers run in all directions. In the span of 28 minutes, the fire is brought under control, but 146 people, mainly young immigrant girls, died.

Location: Treadaway Hall, Guadalupe Chapel

This event is a part of Women's History Month activities at St. Mary's University.
