We have captured a number of 1800's Lowell Weekly Sun Newspaper Articles from
microfilm. We are working to transfer these to a more readable
format for placement on this website. These newspaper articles
offer an interesting perspective on the news of the day.
A large percentage of the articles are somehow related to a reported scandal
at the state run Tewksbury Almshouse (State Hospital).
