Lowell is a city rich in history and culture. America's Industrial Revolution is commemorated at the Lowell National Historical Park, where visitors can tour the canals, turbine exhibit, textile mills, and "mill girl" boarding houses that tell the story of the transition from farm to factory. Birthplace of Whistler and Kerouac, Lowell is also home to the largest free folk festival in the United States. With sports events, historical parks, museums, and theaters, Lowell has something for everyone.
