Abraham Wheelwright and the Newburyport Marine Society

If you are confused about the difference between two important Newburyport institutions with the same “NMS” initials (The Newburyport Marine Society and the Newburyport Maritime Society) you won’t want to miss this!
 
 

Come to First Friday to hear our own Jack Santos (Board of Directors) talk about a special decade in Newburyport’s history – and one that set the stage for our maritime growth for 200 years. Abraham Wheelwright was one of the longest-tenured leaders of the Newburyport Marine Society, and much happened under his term as vice president and president, between 1814-1830. Find out what, and why the Marine Society and the Maritime Society are different and both so special to all of us in Newburyport.
