Lost Opportunity – Walk Newburyport Booklet

The Newburyport Preservation Trust is a member of the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce.

This is a fact well-known to its President, Mary Harbaugh.

And yet, when you walk into the Chamber of Commerce office on Brown’s Wharf, you can clearly see some trail booklets for sale by an organization (Coastal Trails Coalition) that is also a member.

It would stand to reason that not only would the Walk Newburyport booklet aught to be sold here – it should be prominently displayed at the Visitor Booth at the other end of the parking lot.

BUT IT’S NOT.

The closest opportunity is to saunter down to the Custom House Bookstore and get it there.     Since the other great walking tour booklet (but a little outdated) is also there – it makes sense to patronize this place especially as they are the only true ‘Newburyport Store’ in town that really explains what our City is all about.

BUT COMMON SENSE MUST STAND OUT AND SHOUT AT THIS LOST OPPORTUNITY!

They learn about our history,

They learn about the important work of the Preservation Trust,

And they will learn, after obtaining the book, why architecture and history intertwine so seamlessly in Newburyport.

SO WHAT GIVES?
