This tenement building, referred to as 42 Lowell, is a fascinating part of Boston’s history. It once stood in a row among 30 other brick walk-ups; now, this building is the lone survivor.
As our city continues to change, this building has remained, holding strong to its roots. Read more about the building’s history at the West End Museum exhibit.
