I encourage many in the city when you find you are living in a significantly historic house that has some connection to the sea to obtain these plaques.        Their presence is a strong reinforcement of our proud history and contribute greatly to our heritage tourism as so many visitors walk our streets to soak up the atmosphere and to learn of our nation’s heritage.


Signage is important!     In fact, the Newburyport Preservation Trust is making signage a major theme and one of their major pushes will be to get signage to proclaim our rich history from street to street.


Without these indicators of history, the average passerby would just move on, not realizing what significant event occurred there so long ago!




Plans are in the works to offer these plaques at a discounted rate and/or through a partial grant-matching program.     Stay tuned.
