Lowell Massachusetts: Historical Building Surveys


In 1979, The Lowell Cultural Resources Inventory was commissioned by the National Park Service, North Atlantic Regional Office, Division of Cultural Resources and executed by Shepley, Bulfinch, Richardson, and Abbott, Architects, Boston, Massachusetts.

In 1980, The Lowell Neighborhoods Survey was commissioned by the City of Lowell through a Massachusetts Historical Commission, National Historic Preservation Fund Grant and executed by Elizabeth Durfey Hengen, Preservation Planner.

These detailed inventory reports feature field survey and research, and detailed architectural and historical information, including photographs and maps for significant individual properties within The Lowell Cultural Resources Inventory and the Lowell Neighborhoods. The reports in these two surveys have provided an important resource for researchers, scholars, and the general public; yet since 1981 public access has been limited to photocopied sets available at only a handful of locations. Now for the first time digital copies of the original inventories are provided here thanks to a LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) Grant, "Digitizing Historical Resources," awarded to UMass Lowell Libraries from the MBLC (Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners) in 2010 and completed in September, 2011.
