Lowell history

Lowell was first settled in 1653 and was officially incorporated in 1826.

Lowell was named after Francis Cabot Lowell, an inventor of weaving machines, in 1817. Lowell is considered to have been one of the most important cities in the industrial revolution in the United States. Its textile mills, which line the Merrimac River, were the largest, most modern mills of their time. Lowell's historical mills, locks, and canals have been designated as a National Historical Park.

Lowell was the international headquarters for Wang Laboratories until the late 1980s. After Wang folded during an economic depression, Lowell had its ups and downs. Lowell was featured in a 1995 HBO documentary called High on Crack Street: Lost Lives in Lowell. However, Lowell's prosperity grew throughout the 1990s and today its reputation has improved dramatically. It offers a campus of the University of Massachusetts, several theaters, and an amateur baseball team called The Spinners (with its own stadium), and there is a thriving new generation of Cambodian Americans who have put down roots there.

Lowell is musically known for the Lowell Folk Festival, the largest free such festival in the US, and for the school of electronic music at the University of Lowell.

Lowell is the birthplace of Moxie, the first mass-produced soft drink in the U.S.
