Newburyport Preservation Week 2014:
Newburyport's 250th Anniversary ...
... and Historic District's 30th
Wednesday - Sunday, May 14-18, 2014
The theme in 2014 is one of multiple anniversary celebration, so NPT members are advised to mark calendars now and get those party hats-and-horns ready. The year 2014 is the 250th anniversary of the town of Newbury’s “Waterside” separating into the new town of Newburyport in 1754. The year 2014 also happens to be the 30th anniversary of Newburyport’s designation as a National Register Historic District by the U.S. Department of the Interior. Newburyport’s National Register Historic District, comprised of over 2500 contributing buildings when first designated in 1984, extends from the Joppa area of the city’s South End to Atkinson Common at the city’s North End. Within the 7500-acre district are 10 neighborhood districts.Check back on this page for the latest information about Preservation Week 2014.
