Lowell Cemetery

Share this post:

Like Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, Lowell Cemetery is the final resting place of some of the Greater Merrimack Valley’s esteemed and historic women. There’s Edith Nourse Rogers, who was one of the first women to serve in Congress. Then there’s Helen Augusta Whittier, who was the first woman to run a mill in Lowell during a time when women were rarely in positions of industrial leadership. And then there are the mill girls Lousia Wells and Barilla Taylor, whose contributions to history might have been minor, but whose monuments represent the importance of mill girls to Lowell’s local history.
