Kearney Square

Kearney Square in Lowell, formerly called Merrimack Square in an important and busy section of town.  It is named for Lieut. Paul T. Kearney who was killed in action on October 3, 1918.  He was one of five brothers who served in the Great War from this family:  Lieut. Joseph P. Kearney, D. Lieut. Redmond Kearney, Capt. Stephen Kearney, Private Frank J. Kearney and Lieut. Paul T. Kearney.  He graduated from Lowell High School and died at 27 years of age.
Most people recognize this square by the Sun Building.  My first elevator ride and with an attendant!!  The dentist was so much fun!!
