We received the following press release from the Lowell Area Historical Museum about construction currently underway at their building.
The front porch of the Lowell Area Historical Museum is undergoing a replacement.
The porch, while not original to the building, is roughly 100 years old. It was constructed to replace an earlier wood porch. The current porch was falling off of the building and the bricks separating from each other.
The new porch will reuse as many of the concrete blocks as possible. There will also be a new railing and porch rail to match the balustrade on the second floor above.
Thank you to the City of Lowell, the Lowell Area Cable TV Fund, the Downtown Development Authority and the Historic District Commission for help with this project.
This project comes during an important year for the Museum building, its 150th anniversary. Built by Robert Graham in 1873, this building is a marvelous entrance to our downtown Historic District. Much in need of attention, the porch project kicks off the 150th anniversary year. Please contact us with any questions.
