Question: Can you advise me on early city maps for Lowell, Massachusetts.  I will not have a chance to visit NEHGS to use your collections until December.  So I need some online alternatives until then.


Answer:  The Center for Lowell History has maps for Lowell from 1821,1825,1832,1845,1850,1912,1914,[GIS] 2008.  They also have atlases online that include Lowell for the years 1879, 1882, 1896, 1924, 1936, 1977 v. 1, 1977 v. 2.
