Lowell Annexations

by @ 5:35 pm. Filed under History

This morning I was a guest on WCAP (radio 980 AM) and a caller mentioned how the city of Lowell was much smaller at its inception back in 1826 but that portions of Tewksbury, Dracut and Chelmsford were annexed to Lowell through the 19th and into the early 20th Centuries. We have an old map at the registry that shows what portions of the city were annexed on what dates. Given the map’s size and the antique from in which it resides, we haven’t been able to scan it. We have, however, created a database of the various streets that were within the annexed portions along with the dates that they became part of Lowell. So, if you are a resident of the city, CLICK HERE to see if your street was once part of an adjacent town.
