LOWELL
Massachusetts, U.S.A.
CRADLE OF THE AMERICAN INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
Welcome to Lowell, Massachusetts.
Lowell is part of the Middlesex County, and is the fourth-largest city in the state with around 109,000 residents. The city was incorporated in 1826, and has become known as the cradle of the American Industrial Revolution. There are plenty of historic sites left to visit in Lowell, since the National Park Service has preserved many of them. Lowell is home to the second largest public university in Massachusetts, University of Massachusetts Lowell; a Carnegie-classified research university. The boasts being one of the first true American factory towns, and the town attracted many immigrants during the textile boom in the 19th century. People from all over North America and Europe came to secure one of the many available jobs within the mills. In addition, girls from around New England were recruited to work in the mills in exchange for decent wages and housing. The girls became known and the Lowell Mill Girls and comprised the anchor of the Lowell mills. Most of mills have since been bulldozed to make room for public housing and local businesses, and during the 1970s the unemployment rate was staggering high. However, the town has been working hard to revitalize itself since the 1990s, and new developments like the Tsongas Arena were installed. Today, the arena is a popular town attraction and is the home base for the Lowell Spinners (baseball) and the Lowell Devils (hockey). Other developments include converting many of the mill structures into fancy residential lofts and office space. Thanks to the revitalization efforts, many wealthier residents and artists have moved in to the area. There has also been an influx of local boutiques and art galleries in the redeveloped mills, contributing to a new and more upscale Lowell. Those who move here can feel good knowing that the city was recently named one of the safest of its size in the United States. Lowell is constantly renewing itself, and the community is determined to restore the town to its former thriving self.
