It’s National Historic Preservation Month! In Lowell historic preservation is celebrated from May 16-18 beginning with a reception and preservation awards ceremony on May 16 https://www.richardhowe.com/2013/05/02/save-the-date-a-celebration-of-community-preservation-may-16-2013/ followed by the opportunity to peek inside some very special buildings on May 17-18. “Doors Open Lowell” offers an insider’s look into the preservation of many of Lowell’s magnificent historic buildings. It’s a free annual event held during National Preservation Month to celebrate Lowell’s architectural heritage and urban living and culture. Together these have made Lowell a creative and exciting place to live and work. The 2013 schedule has been posted on the web site here http://www.doorsopenlowell.org/buildings-1. There will be a special program guide printed in the Wednesday May 15 edition of the Lowell Sun. Take a look at the schedule and plan to visit and tours these special places!
