ADVENTURES: WATER STREET ENTREPRENEURS OF MARITIME NEWBURYPORT
Custom House Maritime Museum, 25 Water Street, Newburyport, Mass.
A presentation by Skip Motes that explores for us the beginning of colonial maritime trade, launching the Continental frigate Boston, the turmoil of the quasi war with France, and the challenges of the 1807-1809 embargo and War of 1812. And a photographic essay takes us through the evolution of the industrial waterfront. This story takes place along only 800 feet of Water Street and its waterfront in the area of Federal Street, through the lives and ships of enterprising maritime entrepreneurs such as Anthony Gwynn, Ralph and Stephen Cross, Anthony Davenport, William Bartlet, and Robert Bayley, who made and risked their fortunes on the sea.
Admission: $15 Fee for non members, $10 Fee for members. Reception following.
