“Roots of an Urban Cultural Park”

The following video, “Roots of an Urban Cultural Park”, was produced in 1991 by Lowell’s Human Services Corporation to tell the back story of the Lowell National Historical Park and the Lowell Heritage State Park. Featured in the video are Pat Mogan, Marie Sweeney, the late Peter Stamas, the late Mary Bacigalupo and others. This film, 13 minutes long, was shown on November 15, 2012 at the “Remembering Peter Stamas” program at the Whistler House. It is well worth watching, both to get the real story behind the founding of the park and also for a glimpse back at life in Lowell twenty years ago.
