Long Description:
Before European settlers populated the area around Lowell, Massachusetts, a number of Native American tribes lived along the banks of the Merrimack River. Among them were the Wamesit Indians, who lived along the south bank of the river, below the mouth of the Concord River. Today, there is a village of the same name in Lowell, and the name 'Wamesit' is commonly found on businesses in the area.

In 1989, local artist Mico Kaufman unveiled his sculpture The Wamesit Indian. The sculpture depicts a Wamesit Indian leaning on what appears to be tool (probably used for fishing). The sculpture is mounted on top of a very large granite boulder, located in a small grassy area.
