Subject: "Bleachery Train Station" Lowell
Date: Sat, 3 Jun 2006 17:22:27 -0400
This afternoon I took a ride over to "Harrington Square" where Gorham St.
(Rt. 3A) and Moore St. meet, and drove up to Whidden St. That is a very
short street, so it only took a minute to see all the train tracks at the
end of the street ! And, right there, is a small building, made out of
metal, and over the door there is a sign which says "Trainmaster."
So, I'm going to take a guess that the "Bleachery Train Station" (bldg.)
still exists !
I then drove down Prince Ave., and saw a large building with no windows !
That is the building which a "Yarn Company" uses (as per the web sites I
mentioned this morning).
At the other end of that parking lot is the driveway which led to the other
buildings - and the restaurant was part of those buildings. That driveway
seems to be blocked off, so I'm wondering if those buildings beyond the
driveway are vacant.

FYI: As I mentioned this morning, at the end of Moore St., you come to
Lawrence St., and, if you take a right, you will be a short distance from
the entrance to the "Lowell Cemetery."
There is a researcher who offers "guided tours" of that cemetery once or
twice a year. They just had one last month ! I haven't been in the
cemetery that I remember, but the articles about it in "The Lowell Sun" say
that it is a very interesting place to visit.
