The Seaport City
Settled in 1630 and incorporated in 1764, the city of Newburyport
was built by ship owners and sea captains, who carried the name of their city
to remote corners of the world. Situated at the mouth of the Merrimac River,
Newburyport was an ideal location for the shipping industry as the city at the
time was a bustling world trade center. Birthplace of the U.S. Coast Guard,
Newburyport once rivaled Boston as the state’s biggest and best seat of colonial
shipbuilding and worldwide trade. Now, a stroll along High Street or just about
any side street gives a person a look back in time. The various styles of historic
buildings and architecture have been preserved for us to enjoy. Today the city
is just as exciting in different ways. Marinas and fishing fleets have replaced
the shipbuilding and the city itself has gone through a renaissance restoring
the grace and elegance the townspeople are proud of. Federal style brick buildings
dot the downtown area with unique shops, boutiques, galleries, antique stores
and eateries to satisfy every taste.
