Rich in history, resplendent in its architectural beauty and brimming with arts, culture and recreation, Newburyport is a gem. This charming seaport city has everything you want ... warm sandy beaches and cool walks along the magnificent harbor boardwalk ... first rate dining and fun-filled shopping.
Incorporated in 1635, Newburyport is known as a city small enough to know your neighbor yet big enough for cosmopolitan thinking. It is 9.5 square miles and has a population of only 17,000.

As an historic seaport, Newburyport grew to be one of the major ship building and commercial centers on the east coast and the home to many sea captains and statesmen in Colonial times. In the 1970s, it underwent an extensive downtown restoration project which has brought its beauty and historic charm to the forefront.

Today, along with its majestic harbor, outlined by a two-acre park and beautiful boardwalk, Newburyport offers numerous diversified activities and places for recreation.


From the moment you arrive in Newburyport, you are greeted by its beauty, and as you make your way through the community, that beauty will continuously surround you. It's a wonderful feeling.







 

History, culture....

It begins on the outskirts of town wlth the handsomeness of the private homes where an outstanding array of American architectural styles blend gracefully on quiet, tree-lined streets. The ornate Victorian stands proudly beside the stately Greek Revival as the brown Colonial clapboards sit peacefully among the deep reds of the Federalist bricks.
Leaving High Street and journeying downtown, you'll be duly impressed by our distinctive shopping district. Painstakingly preserved in an urban renewal project that began in the 1960s, these dramatic, brick buildings and cobble-stoned walkways draw you into the past when clipper ships crowded the harbor and horse-drawn carriages lined the avenues. A panorama of boutiques, craft shops, emporiums and specialty stores stand ready to serve those with shopping on their minds.

...and recreation: Newburyport has it all

In Newburyport, a lifestyle exists that is rich in many ways. Community spirit, historic districts tucked in among quiet streets and a stimulating cultural environment all combine to make the area a desirable place to call home. From early 19th Century sea captain's homes to modern condominiums, a broad spectrum of housing is available. Boasting the oldest superior courthouse in America and some of the finest church steeples to be found anywhere, Newburyport's cultural and public buildings reflect the city's lofty position of earlier times.



The Firehouse Center for the Performing and Visual Arts (above) offers visitors and residents alike a chance to experience music, dance, drama and art in a restored 19th-century firehouse overlooking a scenic park, boardwalk and the Merrimack River.

Echoing with history is the beautiful public library that was once a private home that entertained the likes of George Washington and contemporaries as well as the Custom House Museum, which was designed by the same architect who designed the Washington Monument.

Other treasured sites include the glorious Cushing House Museum, presently home to the Old Newbury Historical Society, the historic City Hall Building, and The Mall (above).

Another source of pride is the school district in which nearly 84% of all its graduates go on to higher education. Our area also features Governor Dummer Academy, the nation's oldest boarding school and feeder to many Ivy League colleges.

"A Fun Place To Live" means different things to different people, but Newburyport has something for everyone in the way of a good time!

It's buzzing with activity down at thc docks in Newburyport in summertime as fishermen and vessels of all shapes and sizes come and go. For thc adventurous, imagine sailing along side a Finback Whale and feeling the ocean spray from his spout or maybe reeling in the largest Striped Bass of the day! For the less active sea lover, picture yourself watching the sunset on a romantic, after-dinner cruise.

Landlubbers will find great delight with a stroll through Waterfront Park (above) on Merrimac Street. The site of summer concerts, the well-lit park provides a pleasant backdrop for leisurely strolls, photography or just people watching.





 

Maudslay State Park is not only pleasing to the eye with its 476 acres of rolling meadows and pine forests, it will also give the athlete quite a workout. This previously private estate located off Route 113 has eight miles of winding carriage roads and trails on which hiking, biking, cross country skiing and horseback riding are encouraged.

 

 

 

With so much to offer, a resident of Newburyport is the proud owner of a very prestigious address. We cordially invite you to come live in this beautiful little city by the sea!
