Lowell, Massachusetts, is considered by many to be the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. To this day, a great number of people remain unaware of the significant contributions made by the French-speaking Canadian immigrants, mostly from the Province of Québec and the Maritime Provinces, that nurtured the growth and development of this “mill town”.
The information contained herein is meant to document some of the accomplishments of these Franco-Americans from Lowell and the surrounding areas. Please bear in mind that this website is merely a stepping-stone leading to the vast pool of discoveries showing how these immigrants and their descendants demonstrated their civic pride, maintained their cultural heritage, encouraged the preservation of their linguistic identity and nurtured their religious devotions.
