A former textile-manufacturing powerhouse at the intersection of the Concord and Merrimack rivers, Lowell is a livable small city – the fifth largest in Massachusetts – home to around 105,000 people and a major university center. More than 14,000 students attend the University of Massachusetts Lowell campus. Lowell also boasts one of the nation’s most popular festivals of folk music, the Lowell Folk Festival, which happens every July.
Lowell has produced such notables as the great Bette Davis, beat author Jack Kerouac, television personality Ed McMahon, and Oscar-winner Olympia Dukakis. The city itself graced the silver screen more than once in recent years. The Invention of Lying (starring Ricky Gervais) and School Ties (Brendan Fraser) were both filmed there, as was the 2010 release The Fighter (Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg), a drama about the Lowell-born junior welterweight boxer “Irish” Micky Ward.
The mills in Lowell were the leading factories in the United States at the dawn of the industrial revolution. Some say that Francis Cabot Lowell stole British factory plans in order to revolutionize his factory, located at the confluence of the Concord and Merrimack rivers. In the 1850s Lowell was the largest factory complex in the United States, making southern cotton into cloth. While Lowell fell into hard times following World War II, it arose again when computer companies, including Wang Labs and others settled there in the 1970s.
