A Little about Lowell AR
Lowell, Arkansas, in Benton county, is 13 miles north of Fayetteville, Arkansas (center to center) and 104 miles E of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Lowell is on I-49 (Exit 78) between Springdale and Rogers.
Lowell was a small community named Bloomington. It was located along Old Wire Road where the Butterfield Stagecoach stopped. Bloomington was known as "Mudtown" by many early travelers due to their wagons getting stuck in the muck and having to be pulled out. In the Spring of 1881, the community of Bloomington moved a short distance west to be along the new railroad. This new town was officially named Lowell. The nickname "Mudtown" had stuck with the community ever since.
