The area around Lowell, MI is one steeped in American history.
This town was originally founded in 1831, which means it is nearly 200 years old at this point – but it has never been better than it is right now! Despite some rocky periods in the past, Lowell has emerged as one of the best communities in the state of Michigan for education, family, and business.
This town is getting bigger, but it’s still a safe, friendly place to live. It also has a rich and colorful past. You wouldn’t assume that the town history of Lowell would be so fascinating to the manager of a local cannabis dispensary, but hear me out. In my day to day life, I encounter a lot of senior citizens who have lived in Lowell for decades, and remember things not in the history books. Although I sell a lot of recreational cannabis, many of my customers are sick, or elderly, and need weed for medicinal purposes. Every time I see an old, wrinkled face I always ask them questions about how it used to be in Lowell. I even write things down, when they have an interesting anecdote. While I love selling cannabis for a living, what I love even more is doing research for my next book, titled The Unwritten History of Lowell. I hope to record interviews with some of these folks, as well, for a possible documentary about Lowell, but for now I’m just working on the book. I will keep you posted, so you know when you order your copy of the Unwritten History of Lowell.
