A LIGHT IN THE ATTIC: TREASURES OF CITY HALL
 
The Exhibit

James Higgins created a photographic essay on the daily work of City Hall today.  His images of the public employees and officials who are responsible for the workings of local government are juxtaposed with facsimiles of historic documents from the attic of City Hall.  As Historic Board Administrator Diana Prideaux-Brune says, "It is important to realize that we are making history right now."  One panel includes views of the exterior and interior of City Hall along with information about the building.

Lowell Historic Board

The Lowell Historic Board (LHB) was established to promote the educational, cultural, economic, and general welfare of the public through the preservation, protection, and enhancement of the unique historic values of the city of Lowell.  The LHB helps preserve buildings and places significant in the history of the city and of the Commonwealth and the United States.  It encourages design compatible with historic settings and ensures appropriate and coordinated development in the city's historic districts.
