Newburyport History


In late 2013, Newburyport became the 19th community in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to receive a 'Cultural District' designation. Settled in 1635 as part of the Newberry Plantation, the area is one of the most quaint, charming and historical cities in the nation that underwent a major transformation in the 1970's
