Plum Island Light House/Newburyport Harbor Light

Guide Us Through the Channel

Plum Island Light House, Newburyport MA

The Historic Plum Island Light House

The Plum Island Light House also know as the Plum Island Light or the Newburyport Harbor Light, has a very interesting history. It was first lit in 1788 with a lantern burning whale oil. And it was the 13th lighthouse to be constructed in the U.S..  It was needed to guide boaters into the treacherous mouth of the Merrimack River and into Newburyport Harbor. The strong currents and shifting sands at the mouth of the harbor present a serious challenge to boaters to this day.

Newburyport Harbor was very active and important to the U.S. for whaling, fishing, shipbuilding, and trade. There were many ships coming in and out of Newburyport Harbor. Before the lighthouse was built, fires on the beach in Plum Island were used to guide mariners. It was the business people of Newburyport in the 1780s that paid to build the Plum Island Lighthouse. President George Washington appointed the first keeper of the Plum Island Lighthouse, Abner Lowell. And three generations of Lowells served as lighthouse keepers at the Plum Island Lighthouse.

There were storms that damaged and original Plum Island Lighthouse. In addition, shifting sands meant that the Lighthouse had to be moved several times.

The current lighthouse dates from 1898. Since 1927 the lighthouse has been powered by electricity. The last keeper left the Lighthouse in 1951 when the light was automated. Today the lighthouse flashes a green light to guide boaters.  It is still very important to have this lighthouse in operation to guide boats safely through the turbulent area where the Merrimack River meets the Atlantic Ocean.

The Plum Island Lighthouse is located across from the Park River National Wildlife Refuge at the northern section of Plum Island.

Today the lighthouse is owned by the City of Newburyport. Friends of Plum Island Light lease it from the City and care for it. The grounds are open to the public. The Friends of Plum Island Light offer periodic public tours inside the Plum Island Lighthouse.

The picture perfect Plum Island Lighthouse is one of the great lighthouses to visit in New England and the North Shore.  It’s a “must see” for any lighthouse enthusiast and worth the visit if you are in the Greater Newburyport area.

Meet your new Best friend at the Newburyport Black Dog Adoption Event on Saturday, March 9th from 11-3 pm. Please note that dogs may arrive at different times during this event. The Black Dog in downtown Newburyport has a long term partnership with the local rescue group, Sweet Paws Rescue. Together they host two dog adoption events per year. The Black Dog has numerous stores and each store works with local shelters to help promote dog adoption and rescue efforts.

Why does the Black Dog do this? They do this because their roots and our iconic Black Dog silhouette were born from a rescue. Over 50 years ago Captain Douglas of Martha’s Vineyard rescued a small black pup with white paws and of no certain pedigree. She was called Black Dog and she lived for 16 years sailing side by side with her captain. Rescue and dog adoption is embedded in the Black Dog Brand, in hope that one day every dog will have a loving home.

Sweet Paws Rescue is a nonprofit agency driven solely by volunteers. All of the rescued dogs are placed in foster homes until they are able to find their forever home. Many healthy pups make their journey to Massachusetts looking for a family! We encourage everyone to ADOPT and not SHOP for a pet. If you’re considering the addition of a new special member to your household please keep these bi-annual dog adoption events in mind as they are a wonderful opportunity to meet some very special dogs.

The Newburyport Black Dog store located at 37 State Street is host to these events and donates a generous percentage of adoption event sales to Sweet Paws Rescue, helping bring dogs to safety. Even if you can’t adopt a pup, you can SHOP for a cause! 20% of the Newburyport Black Dog Sales from Saturday, March 9th will be donated to Sweet Paws Rescue. Treat yourself to a few new Black Dog items, or maybe you have gifts to purchase. This is a great opportunity to pick up quality Black Dog merchandise, and possibly provide a loving home for one of these very special pups.

If you discover a shop that isn’t offering a Black Friday promotion, the VIP Discount Card can be used at participating VIP Businesses.Black Friday Sales Soak Shoreline, Newburyport MA The foundation of this community based loyalty program is to reward customers with small discounts as a thank you for shopping local throughout the year! Participating businesses have the flexibility to choose their own discount, in order to ensure that the offer works with their margins, helping to drive profitable business and encourages customer loyalty. VIP Card Discounts offered by each participating business are meant to be small because card holders have the opportunity to receive substantial savings if they use their card at multiple businesses throughout the course of the year. VIP Card Discounts are not able to be combined with other discounts or promotions so if you prefer to take advantage of a Black Friday Sale, you can’t use the VIP Card discount on that same purchase.

In addition to Black Friday Sales, many local retailers are also running great promotions and sales on Small Business Saturday. Check out the, “Keep it Local” promotions.

Hosted by the Newburyport Chamber, Fall Fest is the official name for Newburyport’s 2023 Autumn celebration, yet both the name of the event and the associated activities have evolved over the years. Fall Festival, Fall Harvest Festival, Octoberfest and October Festival are all prior year names for what is now referred to as Newburyport Fall Fest. If you happen to recall the Pumpkin Lighting or the Scarecrow Contest these are also prior year activities that were part of the Fall Fest umbrella. If you enjoy attending outdoor events during during the autumn season, we high recommend the annual Fall Festival in Georgetown, hosted by Nunan’s and Cafe Sarina. Newburyport and Amesbury are also host to traditional Oktoberfest celebrations hosted by our local breweries.

Local banks joined forces for their annual Build A Bed team-building initiative, an inspiring example of collaboration and teamwork helping to build beds for children in our community and communities throughout Massachusetts. What began in 2022 as a shared goal to help make a difference in the lives of children developed into a friendly bed-building competition between Newburyport Bank and Institution for Savings.

With the recent merger of Newburyport Bank and Pentucket Bank forming River Run Bancorp MHC, the 2023 local Build A Bed team expanded, adding Pentucket Bank to the roster. The three local banks decided to work together, encouraging employees to create mixed teams to include employees from the other banks. The Build A Bed 2023 teams successfully built 30 beds in support of the mission to provide A Bed for Every Child.

There are many children in Massachusetts who don’t have the luxury of their own bed. They are sharing with siblings or parents and in some cases, children are sleeping on couches, air mattresses, floors and beds that they have outgrown or areBuild A Bed Donations, Teamwork, Newburyport Bank broken. With sleep being an essential element to physical and mental health, the Build A Bed mission has been recognized by many as a critical necessity.

Bank employees kicked off the beautiful afternoon with lunch served by Michael’s Harborside giving bank employees a chance to say “hi” to friends and meet new ones as a warm-up for this amazing team-building activity. Executives from each of the three banks provided opening remarks: Mary Anne Clancy, Senior VP Marketing & Communications for Institution for Savings, Leanne Eastman, Senior VP Community & Public Relations Director for Pentucket Bank and Tim Felter, Senior Executive VP/CFO/CAO/Treasurer of Newburyport Bank. Wilson and Jeffrey, representatives from Massachusetts based nonprofit A Bed for Every Child, provided training for the 70 bank volunteers.

Instead of cars, the Newburyport Bank parking lot was filled with employees, materials and tools that volunteers used to build beds. It was inspiring to see the mixed teams; blue shirts representing Newburyport Bank/Pentucket Bank and the green shirts representing Institution for Savings. It was inspiring to watch businesses that could be categorized as friendly competitors unite for the greater good, putting competition aside and instead prioritizing the Build A Bed mission to help ensure that every child has a place to dream.

Are You Moving to a New Home in Massachusetts?

Moving to a new home can be an exciting and stressful time. Whether you are downsizing, moving closer to family, or looking for a new adventure in Massachusetts, there is a lot to do when it comes to an address change. Along with packing and unpacking, there are numerous other tasks that need to be  completed to ensure a smooth transition into your home. For example, budgeting for a new mortgage payment and shopping for a moving company, are all things to keep on your radar as you transition into your new Massachusetts home.

Before Moving to Your New Home

Before you start looking into home listings on the web or talking with a local real estate agent, you need to know what you can afford. Receiving pre-approval will give you a budget, this way you won’t be wasting time looking at homes outside of your price range. There are various factors that can factor into the amount you are pre-approved for, but typically these factors include your credit score, income, and assets. Going through the pre-approval process can take some time but is one of the first and most important steps in the moving process.

Budget for Monthly Expenses

Budgeting for monthly expenses can be tedious, but typically doing so can help you avoid surprises in the future. In addition to a monthly mortgage payment, you will need to calculate for taxes, insurance, and utility payments. It’s important to keep in mind any appliances and furniture you will need to have before moving to your new home in order to budget for items that could require costly investment as well. Regardless of your monthly expenses it is a good idea to have an emergency fund for unexpected costs, setting aside funds for expenses such as plumbing, electrical, or structural issues.

Connect with a Local Massachusetts Insurance Agent

Generally, you will need to provide proof at the closing of your home that you have paid the first year of premiums on your homeowners insurance. Connecting with a local insurance agent early on is a smart move in gathering and compiling this proof. At Cross Insurance we are an independent insurance broker, able to work with trusted insurance companies, giving you coverage options for home insurance. With a local office in Newburyport, a local insurance agent is only a call away.

Make a Plan for Moving to Your New Home

If you plan on hiring a company to handle the bulk of the work that is required when moving, acquiring recommendations from friends, family, and neighbors on trusted companies can make the process even easier. As well, reaching out early to get quotes can help your planning and your wallet. On the other hand, if you plan on moving to your new home yourself, prepare by collecting boxes, totes, and packing materials early on so you are not without the necessary materials when the time comes. Planning in advance for large pieces of furniture, including measuring doorways in your new home to see if it can be maneuvered to the place you are planning to place it, can help you decide if the furniture will make the journey with you.

Deep Clean Your New Massachusetts Home

Unboxing the cleaning supplies may not be your first thought when arriving at your new home, but pulling out a mop bucket and vacuum can start off your new adventure the cleanest way. First, cleaning will be much easier before bigger, hard to move furniture is placed in multiple rooms. Second, if painting is on the to do list, then you’ll need a clean, dry surface to start with. Third, deep cleaning will give you a closer look at your entire house, and you may find some areas that need to be repaired.

Update Your Locks

It’s a good security practice to replace and update your locks after moving into a new home. This is recommended as you never know how many copies the previous owners had, or who they might have given copies to. While on the topic of locks and keys, it is useful to make a plan for what you would do if you were locked out of your new home.

Update Your Address

Once you are settled into your new Massachusetts home it is important to notify your local post office, utility companies, and tax agencies of your new address. Also, informing your employer, in case they need to send documents and other forms to the correct place, is an important reason to notify them of your new address. Be sure to log in to your various online shopping accounts to update your addresses to avoid lost packages.

The 2023 Santa Parade & Tree Lighting, Hosted by the Newburyport Rotary Club is scheduled for Sunday, November 26th, offering all the holiday cheer that’s to be expected of a downtown yuletide celebration – but there’s a twist. In this most nautical of cities, Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive by boat. Honoring the Clipper City’s heritage as the birthplace of the U.S. Coast Guard, Santa and Mrs. Claus make their first local appearance waving from a Coast Guard boat on the Merrimack River before docking at the boardwalk for a joyful procession through the downtown area to the traditional tree lighting in Market Square.

Kids and families gather on the Newburyport waterfront to await the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus followed by a short parade that ends in Market Square with caroling and the Christmas tree lighting. To kick off the official ceremony, the Mayor gives Santa the key to the City, which is closely guarded and held at The Brass Lyon. The caroling is jointly led by the Newburyport and Triton High School Bands and Chorus with spirited participation from locals capped with Santa hats as they usher in the holiday season. It is important to know that the start time for this event is approximate as the Merrimack River tides can impact the arrival time of Santa & Mrs. Claus. We always recommend arriving early because once our VIP guests’ board their sleigh, this magical event proceeds quickly. Although the official event time posted on the Newburyport Rotary Club website is from 3 – 5:30 pm., they have provided us with more details. Santa & Mrs. Claus are expected to depart on the Coast Guard boat at 3:30 pm. The boat will go up the River towards Michael’s Harborside so that folks can get a glimpse of our VIP’s on the water. The parade start time is expected to be 3:45 – 4 pm by the time everyone is lined up and ready to go and it will take approximately 15 minutes for them to reach Market Square and another 15 minutes for caroling. The tree should be lit between 4:15 – 4:30.

Traditionally held on the Sunday afternoon immediately after Thanksgiving, the Newburyport Santa Parade & Tree Lighting is the much-anticipated kickoff of the area’s official holiday season.

Over the next few weeks Santa will pop up at a host of public events in the area, including a series of tours by firetruck (in Byfield, Newburyport, and Salisbury), and a wide variety of story times’ and parties at local libraries and recreational farms.

In early December in Newburyport, Santa takes up residence at Santa’s Workshop which is festively decorated by the Newburyport Horticultural Society, offering visits and photos with the kids in December. Check the Newburyport.com Events Calendar for the specific days and times.

The Newburyport Santa Parade & Tree Lighting is great example of teamwork and event collaboration for the benefit of the community. This special annual event is Hosted and organized by a large group of local volunteers from the Newburyport Rotary Club with help from the Merrimack River Coast Guard Station, providing transportation for our special VIP’s and the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce who provides the Market Square Christmas tree and our other beautiful downtown Newburyport decorations.

As part of the Chamber’s beautification program, they are in charge of all of the holiday decorations for our city as well as the beautiful hanging flowers you may notice during the Spring and Summer months. When purchasing one of our Newburyport VIP Cards you are able to donate a part of the proceeds directly to the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, these funds are allocated specifically to the beautification program.
