Wetherbee, Kelly, Rose, Maynard, and Ward Houses
— Downtown Lowell Historic District —
These Greek Revival style town houses were among several private residences built along Kirk Street in the 1840s and 1850s for a growing middle class being attracted to Lowell. They are named from left to right for their earliest known occupants: carpenter Asa Wetherbee; sash and door maker Hilliam Kelly; dressmaker Mrs. R. Rose; hat-sellers Misses D. & P. Maynard; and another carpenter, Enoch Ward. They were extensively reconstructed in 1993 for the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate Andre Garin Retirement Residence.
Erected 2016 by City of Lowell and Lowell Historic Board.
