Located on the southern bank of the Merrimack River where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean, Newburyport has a long and rich history. It was once a fishing, shipbuilding and shipping center, with an industry in silverware manufacturing. The captains of old Newburyport participated in the triangular trade, importing West Indian molasses and exporting rum made from distilleries located around Market Square near the waterfront. It is also the birthplace of the U.S. Coast Guard.

With a population of approximately 18,000, and occupying 8.7 square miles, the city is 35 miles from Boston, accessible by train in an hour. Newburyport has a thriving downtown with many shops, restaurants, museums, a movie theater, and a YMCA. This is an active community with many events throughout the year including the annual Art Walk, Yankee Homecoming, Documentary Film Festival, River Fest and Great Chef’s Night. Beautiful Federalist homes line the streets of this charming city forming walkable neighborhoods and easy access to shopping, dining, and the waterfront.
