The popularity of Lowell Cemetery began in the 1840s as a refuge from the confines of the mill city. The crowded boardinghouses and noise of the mills were exchanged for an oasis of peace.
Lowell was the second largest city in Massachusetts at this time, and community leaders, proud of their city were determined to have every advantage available here. A “rural” cemetery was one of those amenities.
As in the custom of the 19th century, Lowell Cemetery continues to be the landscape park of the 1840s with its tree canopy, ornamental shrubs and many Victorian gardens. Nature’s beauty combines with human artistry and elegant and interesting gravestones.
Lowell Cemetery is proud to be members of the Greater Merrimack Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau
