Known as America’s “first industrial city,” Lowell, Massachusetts, is regarded as the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. Shortly after its founding in the 1820s, Lowell fostered a booming textile industry that eventually made the city the biggest industrial complex in the U.S. While many of the city’s mills are now gone, the National Park Service has preserved Lowell’s most historic sites. The city is home to a population of 108,861, as well as the University of Massachusetts Lowell, the second-largest public university in the state.
Interestingly, Forbes named Lowell the 6th “geekiest” city in the U.S. due to the number of residents with bachelor’s degrees in science or engineering or with jobs requiring technical training. Lowell is the fourth-biggest city in Massachusetts and the second-biggest city in the Boston metropolitan area.
