—Downtown Lowell Historic District —Lowell's Greek Revival style "Town House" originally had a large meeting hall upstairs. Town meetings ended in 1836 when Lowell became a city but the meeting hall continued in public use including a speech by Illinois Congressman Abraham Lincoln in 1848. The first City library in the nation opened here in 1845. The current City Hall opened in 1893 and by 1896, the building was sold and privately remodeled. Rehabilitated in 1987, the exterior reflects the building's 1896 Colonial Revival appearance.
