This Day in History

On this day in 1771, the Newburyport selectmen voted to lay out a “Town Way or Landing leading from Merrimac Street to the Channel of Merrimack River” on “all the Land or Flatts” between certain lands at the location of ways 3 and 4 (central wharf).

On March 2, 1772, the town meeting voted to accept this action.
