—Downtown Lowell Historic District —The Lowell Institution for Savings was founded in 1829, providing a savings bank for the early "mill girls." Greek Revival in style, it housed the bank until its closure in 1992. Other tenants shared the building over the years including artists, architects, musicians, engineers, doctors, and community groups. The original wrought-iron balcony survives while the elaborate copper cornice dates from a 1919 renovation that also reduced the building in height from three to two stories.
