Newburyport is located on the south bank of the Merrimack River on the Atlantic Ocean. Newburyport is a small coastal city in Essex County, Massachusetts, United States. A historic seaport with a vibrant tourism industry, it includes part of Plum Island and the Parker River Bird Refuge. The city also proudly calls itself a Coast Guard City for its nationally recognized support of our local Coast Guard branch. During the summer months make sure you visit this tourist town during late July and early August for the Yankee Homecoming festival and stop in to visit Michael’s Harborside, the Black Cow and the Newburyport Brewing Company.
In additiona to toursim, located at the edge of Newbury Marshes, delineating Newburyport to the south, an industrial park provides a wide range of jobs. The city is accessible via Interstate 95 and U.S Route 1. The outer circumferential highway of Boston, Interstate 495, passes nearby in Amesbury, the neighboring town. The MBTA commuter rail line to Boston ends in a new station at Newburyport. The earlier Boston and Maine Railroad leading further north was discontinued, but a portion of it has been converted into the popular recreation Clipper City Trail.
The city is part of Massachusetts’ North Shore and was laid out on the elevated south bank of the Merrimack River between the river and Newbury marshes. The shipyards, now boatyards, extended along the bank at the edge of the river. They were connected by Merrimac Street, which ends upriver where the bank merges into bluffs covered with pine forest. Colonial residences extend up the bank from Merrimac Street to High Street running parallel to it near the top of the ridge. The homes of the seafaring entrepreneurs line High Street. Many feature “widow’s walks”, structures on the roof where the residents could watch for the return of sailing vessels. Nearly every home maintains a splendid flower garden, most dating to colonial times. Various cross streets, such as State Street, Green Street and Market Street, connect Merrimac Street and High Street. The top of the ridge proved an ideal location for later institutions, such as Newburyport High School and nearby Anna Jaques Hospital. The ridge drops more sharply to the marsh on the other side. Along its margin a third parallel street developed, Low Street.
The river bank gradually descends to marshes at Joppa Flats beyond downtown Newburyport. The Plum Island Turnpike was pushed out over the marsh on a causeway to a narrow part of the Plum Island River just to the south of where it connects to the mouth of the Merrimack. A drawbridge was built there, the only access to the island by road. On the Newburyport side a small airport, Plum Island Airport, was built at the edge of the marsh. The portion of Plum Island that is in the city has no direct access to the rest of the city; similarly, there is no access between the mainland and Woodbridge Island or Seal Island, west of Plum Island. Several parks and beaches dot the city, including Plum Island Point Beach, Simmons Beach, Joppa Park, Waterfront Park, Woodman Park, Cashman Park, Moseley Pines Park and Atkinson Common and March’s Hill Park. Newburyport Forest is located in the southwest corner of the city, and Maudslay State Park lies along the northwest part of the city, along the banks of the Merrimack.
Newburyport is located 37 miles north-northeast of Boston and five miles south of the New Hampshire border, the city borders the Gulf of Maine and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Newbury to the south, West Newbury to the west, Amesbury to the northwest, and Salisbury to the north.
