What the…Newburyport’s History Gets No Respect

I am presently working on a dozen homes to highlight in the series of House Stories.      I wanted to put the spotlight on a particularly famous home that was a major station on the Underground Railroad.         The house has been highlighted by the National Park Service and a whole dramatic story is attached to this historic home.    
Except the National Park Service says the home is at 62 Federal Street.       It’s the wrong house.          It is actually at an entirely different address.
I mean, this isn’t wikipedia, it’s our Park Service!
Can’t Newburyport get any respect around here?
Now I am going to have to figure out who to contact to get this corrected.     Perhaps Bill Steelman at Essex National Heritage.
I am peeved!
