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.

American Dream Award 2014

Please plan to join us on Thursday, December 11, 2014 when the International Institute of New England’s Lowell Office honors Luis Pedroso with the Institute’s First American Dream Award.

The American Dream Award is presented to an individual who embodies the work ethic, ingenuity and generosity that are hallmarks of the immigrant experience. Having once been a client of the International Institute, Luis has established himself as an innovative job creator and an investor in the future of our community. He has indeed lived a life of reputation and service.

The event will feature the unveiling of an interactive timeline exploring the immigrant history of Lowell over the last 100 years.  Incorporating files from over 5,000 families served by the International Institute’s Lowell office since 1918, the event will provide opportunities to weave together multiple generations.  Bring your own family stories to add to the fabric!

The International Institute of Lowell was founded in 1918 in response to a large influx of European immigrants into the Lowell area.  Today, as a part of the International Institute of New England’s regional network, we continue to support the needs of our community’s newest arrivals with services that include education, employment, citizenship and health services. Annually, our programs impact over 1500 individuals and their families.

For more information contact Derek Mitchell, Director, International Institute of Lowell, at (978) 596-0069 or dmitchell@iilowell.org. 

Event logistics will be confirmed in the very near future. Please check back for updates and feel free to reach out to IIL with any questions.
