One of our long time contributors, Lucas Lammott, recently visited Lowell, Massachusetts, which is the hometown of Jack Kerouac. We cannot think of a better way to ring in the New Year! He took some great snaps, which he allowed us to repost here. Enjoy!
Kerouac was born on 9 Lupine Road in the West Centralville section of Lowell Massachusetts, 2nd floor.
Lowell High School where JK was a football star that got him a scholarship to Columbia University.
Jack Kerouac later referred to 34 Beaulieu Street as “sad Beaulieu”. The Kirouack family was living there in 1926 when Jack’s big brother Gerard died of rheumatic fever at the age of nine.

Late afternoon rest stop at Brew’d Awakening Coffeehaus downtown Lowell. If you ever get a chance to visit Lowell, you should! It is an eerie place… rich in culture, history and… ghostly inspiration. And if you live in Boston… you have no excuse not to go spend a day in Lowell. Thanks, Lucas, for sharing your day with us!
