Do you want to visit the Center for Lowell History (CLH)?

This hidden gem is part of UMass Lowell. Not only does it contain a wide array of historic archival collections and books but it also has records from many local organizations, which might be exactly what you need for your research.

The CLH is in the Patrick J. Mogan Cultural Center next to Boarding House Park in downtown Lowell. If you want to take a shuttle bus to the Tsongas Center and walk toward downtown. If you want to drive, park in the Joseph Downs garage off of John St. Sync with the Google map of French Street so you can get step-by-step directions.

We want to make sure you have the best experience possible at the CLH so we ask that you make an appointment before coming over via email: This allows us to make sure we have time to find the resources that will help you with your project and staff available to assist with your research inquiries and questions.

There is an amazing team at the CLH who are all happy to help answer your questions over email: and assist with your research. If you don’t need to visit, you have a few easy ways to reach them for help. You can also call us: 978-934-4997. Experience the CLH remotely by searching WorldCat on the Library and CLH homepage for Lowell related books and eBooks, search our LibGuides, peruse our Finding Aids, or explore our Digital Collections which contain thousands of electronic documents, images, and publications.
