Education, Outreach & Events
In addition to its design review and permitting activities, the Lowell Historic Board also maintains a comprehensive survey of over 2,500 historic resources in Lowell; works to include preservation into everyday community planning efforts and projects; and maintains an active education and outreach program including website, newsletter, reference library, publications, house marker program, and Doors Open Lowell, the first such event in the United States when first presented in 2002.
The staff of the Historic Board are happy to provide citywide technical assistance related to preservation, design, and history. The staff can help with issues ranging from signage, architecture, paint, and research. Interested parties need not be within the 10 Lowell Historic Board review districts to be eligible for assistance.
