UMass Lowell puts Cultural Resources Inventory online

If you're interested in the history of Greater Lowell, you will be delighted to learn that the University of Massachusetts Lowell has just made the multi-volumed "Cultural Resources Inventory" and "The Lowell Neighborhoods: An Historical and Architectural Overview" freely available online.  These documents are part of the larger Paul Tsongas Congressional Collection that is held by the UML Library. 

I was fortunate to have found a copy of the Cultural Resources Inventory here at the registry of deeds when I arrived back in 1995.  It's been of great utility when assisting customers in researching some of the most historically significant properties in Lowell.  Now all of that material is available online.  For example, here is the article about St Peter's Church which was located across the street from the courthouse but was torn down 15 years ago. 

All of these records can be accessed via this link:   

Please check it out.
