Discover the richness this diverse neighborhood has to offer...

Just northwest of downtown, the Acre was initially named for its size. However, during Lowell’s industrial boom, it quickly became one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in the City, outgrowing its original name. As the population grew, a network of businesses and schools emerged, creating a diverse, distinct community. Today, the neighborhood is undergoing a tremendous revitalization, providing affordable, quality housing while retaining its strong cultural heritage. Fueled by the work of City planners and community organizations, the Acre continues its mission of preservation and economic growth.
