Lowell Heritage State Park is located in Lowell, Massachusetts.[3] The state park was established in the mid-1970s as a precursor to Lowell National Historical Park with the purpose of preserving the city's seminal role in the American Industrial Revolution. Aside from the functions the national park also serves, the state park maintains additional sites around the city such as the Sampas Pavilion.
