About Newburyport
map
Newburyport, MA local information and guide to businesses that call Newburyport home including the local restaurants, real estate agents, hotels, antique shops and tourist attractions. Newburyport is on of the smallest cities in the state of Massachusetts, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful oceanside community!

The city has a strong tourist industry including a favorite destination for art lovers. Here you will find a most charming and large downtown area full of art galleries, specialty shops, historic B&B's, and terrific restaurants.

Newburyport is home to many large and gracious Federalist homes that were built by fortunes acquired by whaling and clipper ship owners living during the 19th century. Don't forget to visit Plum Island, an oceanfront wildlife refuge which also contains lovely beachfront and adorable summer homes and cottages.

Newburyport is very proud of its history and justifiably so, Newburyport staged the first tea party in opposition to England's tax on tea and it was well before the more famous one in Boston Mass. Newburyport is also proud to be the birth place of the United States Coast Guard since the first ship commissioned for the Coast guard was built here and named the frigate Massachusetts.

In the early 1960's, Newburyport used state and federal funds to launch a massive redevelopment scheme to reclaim its historic neighborhoods made of granite, cobblestones and to update their utilities such as water and sewer. At the same time in order to prepare for a profitable present and future, Newburyport built an industrial park which now houses many diversified small industries.

Many residents commute daily to Boston via Route 95 and on the commuter rail. Residents are proud of the fact that many families have lived in the city for generations, but they are just as proud of the fact that the city welcomes newcomers and the new ideas they bring. So come to Newburyport and experience the history, beauty and hospitality!

Middays at the Meeting House Talk Matters: Civic Oration Yesterday and Today
For 2,500 years, from the Greek agoras to today's TED Talks, civic society has relied on public oration as a way to discuss and debate social and political issues. However, the prevalence of mass media in the 21st century has nearly obliterated the live and impassioned public speech that marked historical activism including public responses to the Boston Massacre, and the "Meetings of the Body of the People" that led to the Boston Tea Party. So what has taken its place? Come listen to Boston College professor Celeste Wells and spoken word poet Danny DeLeon discuss the history of civic oration, and today's different but equally powerful citizen orators. $6; FREE FOR OSMH MEMBERS

Middays at the Meeting House: I Now Pronounce You: Lucy Stone (1818-1893)
Meet Lucy Stone, the first woman from Massachusetts to earn a college degree and a lifelong supporter of human rights. As a scholar, Stone studied Greek and Hebrew and argued that the Holy Bible was mistranslated to oppress and objectify women. In her personal life, she demanded that her marriage vows be rewritten and refused to take her husband's surname, leading to the moniker "Lucy Stoner" for a woman who does just that. As a public speaker, Stone campaigned for equal rights for women and African-Americans, and inspired many women, including Susan B. Anthony, to join the suffrage movement. Listen and learn about this outspoken 19th-century "feminist-abolitionist," portrayed by critically acclaimed actress Judith Kalaora. $6; FREE FOR OSMH MEMBERS
