Last month, the LFC was fortunate enough to help promote (and attend) the premiere of filmmaker Chad Montrie‘s documentary, River Cycle: The Concord in Lowell. The event was a sold-out affair, with almost 100 people in attendance and a great lineup of guest speakers, including the Tsongas Industrial History Center, Lowell National Historical Park, and Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust. Chad, a good friend and supporter of the LFC, was present as well, and put the film project in grand perspective. After hearing everyone share their knowledge and passion for Lowell and its incredible natural beauty, it made us feel even more thankful for being a part of such a remarkable place.
If you weren’t able to attend the April film premier of River Cycle, you’ll have ample opportunity to see the film this weekend during Doors Open Lowell, one of the city’s most intriguing events. Also celebrating National Preservation Month, Doors Open Lowell offers the public a chance to fully explore Lowell’s glorious architecture from the inside out. Historic homes and places will be open for all to see, including newly renovated living spaces available for sale or lease. Homeowners and renters also open their doors to the masses, inviting visitors in to see the different ways they’ve created work/living space out of Lowell’s beautiful historic structures.
