An article by Lowell Historical Society Curator Ryan W. Owen appears in the May/June 2016 issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine, which hits Greater Lowell newsstands soon.
Lowell has lots to see, and do! Some of Lowell’s best history-related points of attraction are featured in the article, A Peek into Lowell’s Past.
The list includes the downtown area’s Boott Mills Cotton Museum, which also happens to house the Lowell Historical Society’s archive. In addition, the article also features Shedd Park, Fort Hill, the Central Fire Station, and Lowell Cemetery.

Sadly, there wasn’t enough room to include Shedd Park’s Pollywog Pond in the article, even though we’re sure it’s historic to many of our readers who grew up in the area. Below is a photo taken in early March, of the pond, as it appears today. Remember all that snow a few months ago?
