    The Newburyport Preservation Trust strongly supports establishment of a Local Historic District in Newburyport as a proven way to ensure preservation of individual neighborhood streetscapes as well as our more high-profile architectural gems. The distinctive, authentic architectural and historical character draws people to live, work, and play in Newburyport, and sustains the city’s economic vitality. NPT's Local Historic District Advocacy page remains as an information source on Local Historic Districts in general, and on the establishment of a sensible ordinance long overdue in Newburyport.

    At last --- a resuscitated web site ... and you’ve found it! NPT is pleased to introduce its new information-packed web site. In addition to dramatically expanded content about Newburyport's history, architecture, and preservation, the new site integrates streamlined membership management and online store functions.

    Throughout the NPT site --- and on the dedicated Preservation Resources page --- are informatively annotated links to external sites of interest to Newburyport architecture enthusiasts and of use to owners of older homes. The new site includes the equivalent of 50 pages of all-new professionally-prepared text content, 113 photos, 33 custom graphics, 18 historic maps, 8 hours of video, 117 links to publications and organizations, and access to 6104 pages of Newburyport history, architecture, and preservation knowledge.

    As we gain familiarity with the many available functions of the new site, we will activate new features. Our goal is to allow members to easily log-in, update contact information, renew membership, make purchases, donate, and register for events all online.

    Content compilation/composition, site organization, design, and custom graphics were accomplished in-house by NPT. The site was implemented by Tykatech, a Massachusetts company experienced with online membership management applications.

    We invite members to explore the site, and then send comments, compliments, complaints, brickbats, suggestions, etc. to webwrangler@nbptpreservationtrust.org.
