Notable people

Lowell was the home of Jonathan "Jock" Darling, a famous Maine Guide in the late 19th century. In an obituary of 1898, the New York Times called him "the pioneer and king of all Maine guides". Darling was originally a notorious poacher, who later became one of the most effective game wardens. He owned a hunting camp on Lake Nicatous that attracted many well-heeled New Yorkers. New York Times Obituary Patch lives here (on the lake)
