Treasures in the Archives: Newburyport 1764-2014

Join us on Sunday, December 7th at 2pm for another event celebrating Newburyport's 250th Anniversary! Discover rare treasures on display from the Library's Archival Center collection and visit our information tables where you can learn all about Newburyport’s rich history through the years. Learn how to trace your genealogy, view early maps, see hundreds of photographs, find out how old your house is, explore Plum Island history, learn more about Newburyport in the Wars and more! If you would like to share your old photos with us, we will digitize them at our scanning station for you. This is a free event and all are welcome!
