In 1967, Jack Kerouac moved back to Lowell, MA. He had married Stella Sampras, his mother had suffered a stroke, and his sister had died suddenly.

While in Lowell during this period, Kerouac wrote Vanity of Duluoz: An Adventurous Education, 1935-1943. He was also known to frequent Nicky's Bar at this location (currently a restaurant).
