In Edson Cemetery, there's a cool and modest grave of beat poet Jack Kerouac, the famous son of overtly proud Lowell. There are usually gifts still lying there, lighters, joints, wine, etc. Once inside the gates, the site is on Lincoln Ave, between 7th and 8th St.



I went to the cemetery for the first time a few months ago but had no idea where to look. I asked two random strangers if they knew and the three of us made it a group effort until we found it. I guess there really are a few beatniks left in Lowell.

oh, her?

shit, that's awesome. now i really wanna go! you've gotta love jack.


I visited this site, guided by Lowell's own Steve "Rat" Albert. broomcup was there, was was some others.
