Newburyport Information and Highlights

Newburyport is a small, coastal city in Essex County, Massachusetts, United States, 35 miles northeast of Boston. The population was 17,416 at the 2010 census. A historic seaport with a vibrant tourism industry, Newburyport includes part of Plum Island. The mooring, winter storage and maintenance of recreational boats, motor and sail, still contribute a large part of the city's income. A Coast Guard station oversees boating activity, especially in the swift tidal currents of the Merrimack River.

History

Newburyport was settled in 1635 as part of Newberry Plantation, now Newbury. On Jan. 28, 1764, the General Court of Massachusetts passed "An act for erecting part of the town of Newbury into a new town by the name of Newburyport.

The act was approved by Governor Francis Bernard on Feb. 4, 1764. The new town was the smallest in Massachusetts, covering an area of 647 acres, and had a population of 2,800 living in 357 homes. There were three shipyards, no bridges and several ferries, one of which at the foot of Greenleaf Lane, now State Street, carried the Portsmouth Flying Stage Coach, running between Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Boston.

Location

The city is part of Massachusetts' North Shore; Newburyport was laid out on the elevated south bank of the Merrimack River between the river and Newbury marshes. The shipyards, now boatyards (and still vigorously active), extended along the bank at the edge of the river.

Situated 5 miles south of the New Hampshire border, the city is bordered by the Gulf of Maine (Atlantic Ocean) to the East, Newbury to the South, West Newbury to the West, Amesbury to the Northwest, and Salisbury to the North.
