Welcome to Lowell


In modern Lowell, 25 miles north of Boston, an influx of Southeast Asian immigrants has diversified the culture (and cuisine) of this classic New England mill town. A short walk from the historic center into the ethnic neighborhood known as the Acre reveals that Lowell has definitely changed from the city it was 150 years ago.

Lowell was the birthplace of two American cultural icons: painter James Abbott McNeill Whistler and writer Jack Kerouac.
