About Lowell
map
Lowell Massachusetts is located in northeastern Massachusetts about 25 miles north of Boston and is accessible via the major highways of routes 495, 3, and 93 as well as the MBTA commuter rail.

Lowell's National Park serves as a tribute to the Industrial Revolution and the textile industry that was so much a part of New England in the 19th century. The rehabbed mill buildings, the trolley and canal, and the museums are all part of Lowell's Historical tours.

The 19th century mill buildings host small and large companies at unique financial incentives which serves to promote new growth and development in Lowell. The Lowell Auditorium is a 3,200 seat venue which hosts many of the country's best performers at very reasonable prices.

The city's workforce is computer literate and supported by the schools in the district. Lowell is home to the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and Middlesex Community College. The student population creates a profitable atmosphere for retail businesses in downtown Lowell and surrounding neighborhood.

Lowell is built around the Merrimack River and its diverse canal system which adds to its character and appeal. Residents proudly proclaim that Lowell has something for everyone with its unmatched quality of life.

The late Ed McMahon from the Tonight Show was born in Detroit and grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts. He got his start on television playing a circus clown on the 1950-51 variety series Big Top.

Soldering Workshop

If you’ve never soldered before, this is the class for you! This course teaches through-hole (90% of electronic kits) soldering and is recommended for the beginner. This is a hands-on class where the students learn techniques to help them solder through-hole components. Soldering can be daunting for the first solder joint, then the 2nd solder joint is not so bad, and by the time you’ve assembled the blinky grid, you will be quite confident and proficient in basic soldering skills.

Classes take place at Lowell Makes. We provide all the tools, irons, solder, parts, and seats for up to 5 students.

The class is expected to take around 1.5 hour to complete, there is a buffer built in in case we go a bit longer.

Prerequisites: None! Just bring yourself. The class price includes the cost of the WeevilEye kit.

What to bring: Lowell Makes will provide all the tools, irons and solder.

Proceeds above will go to help support Lowell Makes.

Peter Wolf and the Midnight Travelers

Best known for his tenure fronting the J. Geils Band, singer Peter Wolf was born and raised in the Bronx, and came from a family active in show business. His father was a dancer, song plugger, disc jockey, and singer of light opera; his mother, an organizer for the civil rights and labor movements, was a teacher for inner-city children in the Bronx. Wolf's earliest passion was painting, and he was accepted on a scholarship to the Museum of Modern Art's Special Studies for Children, and later to the High School of Music and Art, just blocks from the Apollo Theater, where the young Wolfwould made weekly visits. Seeing performers like Jackie Wilson, Dinah Washington, Otis Redding, and James Brown sparked his early interest in blues and R&B. After graduating from high school, he hitchhiked through the Midwest; in Chicago, he became involved in a couple of blues and folk music societies while studying painting at the University of Chicago. While there, he visited the South Side blues clubs, drawing influences from the musicians he saw there.

What's Your Story?
Come hang out with park rangers, get creative, and explore your city's stories! This summer, Lowell National Historical Park invites families to Your City Summer, a regular series of free inter-generational activities. Each Friday from June 20-August 22, come to Mack Plaza near the Visitor Center from 10AM-11AM for creative activities exploring three themes important to Lowell's past and present: Family Stories (June 20-July 4), City Kids (July 11-August 1), and Stories of Stuff (August 8-August 22). Your City Summer will take place outdoors (weather permitting, rain location inside the Visitor Center) with different explorations each week. Although Your City Summer programs are offered on a free, drop-in basis, families should arrive by 10AM and plan to participate for the complete hour. Your City Summer is part of a year-round series of family programs that includes Your City Saturdays (October-April), Lowell Kids Week (February school vacation), and April PLAY-cation (April school vacation). These programs aim to inspire creativity in the next generation of National Park stewards, and to engage families in hands-on investigations of Lowell's unique stories, past, present, and future. Lowell played an important role as the country's first major planned industrial center in the 1820s, and continues to reflect cycles of creativity, industry, immigration, and innovative urban planning. While you're downtown, make a day of it! Family-friendly activities at Lowell National Historical Park include canal boat tours, museum demonstrations, Lowell Summer Music Series kids' concerts, and trolley rides.
