NEWBURYPORT FACTOID:

Proud Newburyport History: First United States Coast Guard station First of many subsequent Clipper ships built here First "Tea Party" rebellion to oppose British Tea Tax First state mint and treasury building Oldest active and continuously running court house.

Newburyport prospered and became a city in 1851. Situated near the mouth of the Merrimack River, it was once a fishing, shipbuilding and shipping center, with an industry in silverware manufacture. The captains of old Newburyport (as elsewhere in Massachusetts) had participated vigorously in the triangular trade, importing West Indian molasses and exporting rum made from it. The distilleries were located around Market Square near the waterfront. Caldwell's Old Newburyport rum was manufactured locally until well into the 19th-century.
