Welcome to the Historic Board!



The Lowell Historic Board is the City of Lowell's historic preservation agency.  Central to the Board's responsibilities is its design review, permitting, and enforcement authority in the Downtown Lowell Historic District and ten additional neighborhood districts.  In addition to its design review and permitting activities, the Board also provides technical assistance regarding preservation and design citywide, maintains a comprehensive survey of over 2,500 historic resources in Lowell, and runs an active education and outreach program including online newsletter, Facebook page, house marker program, and the annual Doors Open Lowell event.   Member details are available here at the City's new online Agenda and Meetings tool.
