Lowell is a former textile town on the Merrimack River in Massachusetts, USA. The Boott Mills are an early American cotton mill - the most intact in Lowell.
In the late 1970s, they became a key component of the Lowell National Historical Park. A single row of housing, built for the early mill girls under the Lowell System, still stands.
