The Newburyport Preservation Trust's 7th annual Preservation Week will be Wednesday - Sunday, May 8-12, 2013. The theme this year is the role of Newburyport women in preservation, and the related skills at hearth and home, and with herbs and healing. Five days of activities for all ages and interests include walking tours, lectures, a brunch, and the annual Historic Preservation Awards. Events are open to the public and many are free. For program information, see the complete schedule on our Preservation Week Page.
Note that some events require registration, some through our web site's Events page, and some by phone through Historic New England's regional headquarters in Newbury (978-462-2634).
Preservation Week offers insight and first-hand access to the rich historic events and architecture that create Newburyport’s character and charm. Anyone who enjoys living in or visiting Newburyport, as well as history enthusiasts and historic homeowners, will find activities that the whole family will enjoy while gaining a greater appreciation for the treasures in this unique and historic community. This year's Newburyport Preservation Week is presented in partnership with Historic New England and the Custom House Maritime Museum. This year the Institution for Savings joins us as a sponsor of "The Herbalist's Garden" lecture on Mother's Day.
