Lowell Real Estate
Lowell, Indiana Real Estate and Community Information
Welcome to your one-stop resource for all things Lowell, Indiana Real Estate!
Originally isolated at the center of miles and miles of farmland, Lowell began to prosper like many Midwest towns, when the railroad came through. The Louisville, New Albany, and Chicago Railroad connected the small farming community with the rest of the country in 1880 sparking industries like the sawmill and brick making, utilizing the natural resources of water power and the clay rich soil of the region, respectively. Although Lowell now has its share of McDonalds and Walgreens stores, it still holds history and tradition dear to its heart, as evidenced by its vital and healthy downtown district.
