1889

—Downtown Lowell Historic District —

Lowell's main fire station burned down in 1888 and although centrally located, was difficult to access on Middle Street. Palmer Street was cut through between Market and Merrimack Streets in 1889, improving access, and this new firehouse was built fronting on the newly created street. Designed in the Romanesque Revival style by local architects Merrill and Cutler who also designed the current City Hall (1893), it served as Lowell's main station until 1972.
