Lowell National Historic Park was established in 1978 and is operated by the National Park Service, which has park partners and volunteers to help with the care of the national park. The park has many notable features and takes visitors back to the industrial era where they can learn how the cotton mill worked and how textiles were created.
Features include: the Boott Cotton Mill and Museum, The Francis Gate, the Mill Girls and Immigrants Boarding House, the Suffolk Mill Turbine and Powerhouse, and the Lowell Canal System. The park has a visitor center that provides a free self-guided tour, and the footpath along the Merrimack Canal offers visitors a glance into the functions of existing and former sites.
