Time travel
Archival Center
Newburyport Public Library

Here is what I did for fun today- time travel!
I got to mess around with antique maps at my volunteer job.
These maps go back to when the native people lived here! Newbury was settled in 1635, and the town of Newburyport was established in 1764. The building I work in was constructed in 1771.
I've only been here since 1974, so I am a newcomer. I have a lot to learn about this place.
