About Lowell's Special Places:

Lowell Massachusetts holds a special place in American history. The Industrial Revolution roared full force out of the textile mills and power canals of 19th Century Lowell. Before the factories made a great red brick line along the Merrimack River, this place at the junction of two rivers had been an important fishing ground for native peoples for centuries. In the 1820s, textile manufacturing put Lowell MA on the map. The mills drew workers from all over, first from farms and villages in the region, and then from countries around the world. The combined cultures made Lowell what it is today: a thriving city of more than 100,000 people - a place whose heritage is important enough to be preserved and told through the museums and rangers of Lowell National Historical Park; a city that is home to the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Middlesex Community College; a cultural hub with museums, performance centers, minor league sports, and restaurants of every kind; and a community whose neighborhoods each have special places to discover and a distinct character arising from the people who live here. Whether you live around the corner or across the country, we (the LHP) invite you to explore the city. (B. Palermo, Page 1)
