Inscription.  

Grassy park spaces have always been important in Lowell. The first mill yards were planted with grass and trees and designated "Malls."

In 1847, Lowell citizens insisted that the Northern Canal feature a tree-lined promenade; but by the 1860's many of these amenities were swallowed up by the industrial expansion. This garden, in fact, was a "mall" before 1873, when the Lowell Card Company factory was built here.
