Lowell is a city located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, and is currently home to over 108,000 residents, making Lowell the fourth-largest city in the state. The city sits as one of two county seats for Middlesex County, with the other being Cambridge, and Lowell is currently home to the University of Massachusetts – Lowell, which is the second-largest university in the entire state and is also a Carnegie-classified research university, meaning it does a lot of groundbreaking research and development in a variety of different scientific fields. The city today sits just 25 miles northwest of Boston.
Founded in as early as 1653 and incorporated in 1826, Lowell proper was relatively planned; though settlers had been living in the area since the early 1650’s, it wasn’t until 1820 that any type of cohesion was seen in terms of development or planning. Lowell was intended to be a major manufacturing center in Massachusetts, and for a number of years it was, and was famed for its textile production. Over time, deindustrialization forced the economy of Lowell to change significantly, and today the city has, primarily, a service-based economy, though there is still some industry present in Lowell today.
