The mission of the Lowell Historical Society is to collect, preserve and publish materials related to Lowell and to encourage and promote the study of the history of the city. Membership is open to the public and all contributions are tax deductible.

If you are interested in making a donation of a physical artifact, please contact us! Please be aware that as a general rule, we do not take old newspapers, and our physical storage space is limited.

Members are offered a variety of historical programs each year and advance invitations to exhibits, workshops and conferences. By joining, members receive the Society's newsletter twice a year as well as a discount on selected publications. Members also serve in a variety of capacities including as Society directors, officers and volunteers.
