The City Hall Historic District is a historic district in Lowell, Massachusetts roughly between Broadway and French Streets, Colburn Street and both sides of Kirk Street. The centerpiece of the district is the Richardsonian Romanesque City Hall, built in 1893 to a design by Merrill and Cutler, with its 180-foot (55 m) clock tower.[2]

The district features Greek Revival and Romanesque Revival architecture, including work by Kirk Boott. City Hall Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975, and expanded in 1988.[1]
