The Seaport City



Newburyport: 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.
