Lowell is approximately 20 miles east of Eugene along Hwy 58 in Lane County. The city of Lowell is surrounded by three reservoirs, Lookout Point, Dexter and Fall Creek. This community continues to lead the area in Fishing, water skiing and boat racing.

Lowell was once known as the landmark of Butte Disappointment and later became Cannon, named after an early settler of that name. The town site was originally located on land owned by Amos D. Hyland, who at this point in time, held 2,450 acres of land. The name Cannon was changed to Lowell in 1882. The reason for this was that so many incorrectly delivered letters reached Canyon, Oregon instead of Cannon.

Today agriculture is the main occupation, aided by lumbering and chicken raising.

There is also a Lowell, Maine.

Lowell is part of the Eugene-Springfield, Oregon metro area.
