A special treat this year – if it’s your first time, you may be in luck! Mary Baker Eaton has been diligently compiling house stories at https://historynewburyport.com/. She may even have enough information for a ready made sign for your house! The map is at http://map.marybakerart.com. Now it couldn’t be easier to put up a sign!
Join in the fun, meet your neighbors, talk to the street strollers, and let’s make it a city-wide success of one more year of “If This House Could Talk” during Yankee Homecoming.
