The Lowell National Historical Park & Preservation District was created under the federal legislation that created the Lowell National Historical Park in 1978. Several previously-existing districts on the National Register of Historic Places are also located within the larger boundaries of the district including the City Hall Historic District, Merrimack-Middle Streets Historic District, and the Locks and Canals Historic District in addition to several individually-listed National Register properties. The district includes many industrial, commercial, residential, and institutional structures and a wide range of period architectural styles.
