The Lowell Memorial Auditorium is an indoor facility located in downtown Lowell, Massachusetts. It is dedicated to local veterans of war.

Contents

The 2,800 seat venue was constructed in 1922 by the architectural firm of Blackall, Clapp & Whittemore. The exterior walls feature the names of famous generals and battles, with monuments to newer wars on the auditorium's small lawn.

Common events include concerts, comedy acts, large plays, and boxing. Attached to the auditorium is the smaller theatre of the Merrimack Repertory Theatre.

In February 2014 a Civil War era flag was discovered in the basement of the facility. The flag had been carried by Solon Perkins, a lieutenant in the 2nd Massachusetts Cavalry Regiment. He was killed in the Battle of Clinton, Louisiana on June 3, 1863. The flag is now hanging in the Hall of Flags at Lowell Memorial Auditorium. Researchers found out that it was donated to the Lowell Memorial Auditorium in 1929 by Mary Sawyer Knapp.
