Newburyport Honors the Past

History

With history dating back to the 1600’s, Newburyport was well know for shipping and shipbuilding. Now, thanks to our devoted preservationists and historians, Newburyport museums, historic tours, monuments and festivals allow us to learn and respect our town’s past.

Many landmarks have even become national attractions, including the Custom Maritime Museum and the US Coast Guard. The Newburyport Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic places, and did you know the first flying field in New England was on the sand dunes and marshes of Plum Island Beach?
