Lowell

Lowell
The Essential
One of Massachusetts' largest cities, Lowell was the earliest planned mill town in the United States. The nearby Merrimack River enabled the town to become the nation's largest textile manufacturer in the 19C. It was the birthplace of writer Jack Kerouac (1922-1969) and actress Bette Davis (1908-1989). Today, its economy revolves around tourism, while its low rents appeal to artists.
