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).
