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.
