As part of Trails & Sails 2017, tour the Newburyport Powder House, built in 1822 at Godfrey's Hill on Low Street, with a restored exterior and interior. The original cobblestone wagon path is now open as an historic park and learning center. The open house will feature a master cooper demonstration and guided tours of this unique historic landmark critical to our defense. For Newburyport men who served in the Massachusetts Militia this was an important and vital building. Come learn about the role the Powder House played in Newburyport's maritime economy and the ship captains and merchants who stored gunpowder here.
