Season of Change

The Lowell Area Historical Museum is housed in the historic Graham house. This beautiful building and its grounds are a source of pride to the Museum and our community. They are located at the entrance to the Downtown Historic District and welcome visitors.

This summer you will notice some changes happening on the grounds. We have some plantings that have died and need replacing, including a line of trees that shields the garden from the busy road. While this process unfolds, you will be able to see into the beautiful garden that is host to many events.

With changes being made, we wanted to share images of how this space has looked at various times in the past. The images above show the trees that need replacing, the garden when the plantings were new and the house that once stood next to the Graham house in the current garden space. Bottom pictures show the house next to the museum and during the 1931 Centennial parade
