Lowell City Directories
When beginning research into the history of Lowell, one of the first places staff at the Center for Lowell History consult is the Lowell City Directories. Published most years since 1826, the directories list the names of city residents, their addresses, whether they owned, rented, or boarded, their occupation, and more. Businesses also received entries.
Directories are a resource for historical research and genealogical information. In addition to listing people and organizations, directories may also include historical narratives, maps, advertisements, and vintage images.
