Long Description:
The canals in Lowell, Massachusetts were begun in 1792 when a group of Irish laborers from Charlestown made their way up country to a town on the Merrimack River called Chelmsford. A new town was planned here on the banks of the Merrimack, the first planned factory town in America which the intrepid entrepreneurs, along with Governor John Hancock, later called Lowell. For more information on these canals see this website, (visit link)
