1. Merrimack St. Depot Marker
Inscription. This corner was the hub of Lowell activity from 1835 when the B&L Railroad opened, through the 19th century. The passenger depot stood here; in 1835 it was replaced by an Italianate style building which combined city offices, public meeting halls and railway station under one roof. Upstairs, Huntington Hall was a great cultural asset where the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Russian dance troupes and Shakesperean plays were performed.
 
Erected by Lowell Heritage State Park-Lowell National Historical Park.
