The Middlesex Canal Association has a long running history in the Billerica community. The new location of the Middlesex Canal Museum is located directly on the Concord River in the heart of the Historic Mills District. It is situated on the banks of the Summit Mill Pond, aside the canal where the ceremonial ground breaking took place 220 years ago and adjacent to the future Middlesex Canal Heritage Park in North Billerica.
The project was to completely renovated the interior, while maintaining the historic presence of the exterior masonry facades. The museum will have two open gallery spaces that will also be used by the association to host events and meetings. There will be a back porch for the public to experience the historical significance of the canal.
