Lowell National Historical Park will be opening the exhibit “The Preservation Movement: Then and Now,” presented in collaboration with Historic New England, beginning May 13th in the Boott Gallery. The exhibit, on display until September 26, 2010, focuses on two centuries, and two tales, of historic preservation in Massachusetts and New England. Both parts of the exhibit tell the rich and intriguing story of the growth of a historic preservation ethic in Massachusetts.

The exhibit opening will take place on May 13 at 5:00 pm with the kick-off celebration for Doors Open Lowell at a reception hosted by the Park, the City of Lowell, and Lowell Heritage Partnership. RSVP is required to 978-275-1700 or cheryl_clark@nps.gov.

During the rest of the exhibit run, it will be open 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm to the general public beginning on Friday, May 14 and every weekend in May. The exhibit opens seven days a week as of May 31 – September 5 and will be open weekends in September through the 26th. The exhibit is free and is located in the Boott Gallery on the first floor of the Boott Cotton Mills Museum at 115 John Street, Lowell.
