Lowell Cemetery virtual tour: Augustin Thompson
September 5, 2011 by DickH Posted in History, Lowell 3 Comments
In the spring and the fall each year, I lead free public tours of historic Lowell Cemetery. This month, tours will occur on Friday, September 9 at 1 pm and Saturday, September 10 at 10 am. Another set will occur on Friday, September 30 at 1 pm and Saturday, October 1 at 10 am. All tours begin at the Knapp Avenue entrance to the cemetery, right next to Shedd Park. Just show up, rain or shine, ready to wander through the cemetery for 90 minutes.
As a service to those who because of time or mobility limitations, are unable to attend the tours, I hope to recreate each stop on the tour on video and post them here from time to time. Here’s my first one, Dr. Augustin Thompson, the creator of Moxie.

Thank you for taking the time to “take us along on the tour” like this.
I appreciated this Augustin Thompson stop along the way as I have enjoyed drinking Moxie for many years (and still do) and now know a little more about it!
I look forward to viewing more stops on the tour.
Very interesting. Thompson was not the last Lowellian to stretch the truth.
Appears he had a lot of …Moxie.
