Lowell Heritage State Park is a public recreation area and historical preserve located in Lowell, Massachusetts, that protects and promotes the city's seminal role in the American Industrial Revolution.[3] The state park was established in 1974 as a precursor to Lowell National Historical Park, which was created in 1978.[4] Aside from the functions the national park also serves, the state park maintains additional sites around the city such as the Sampas Pavilion.
