“telling the stories of the sailors, Revolutionary War privateers, & merchants”
Salem Maritime National Historic Site is a nine-acre National Park which tells the stories of the sailors, Revolutionary War privateers, and merchants who brought the riches of the world to America. Salem, Massachusetts has looked to the sea since the community was founded in 1626, and the rich history of the city’s maritime trade and traditions are reflected in Salem Maritime’s wharves and historic buildings. When the United States was young, ships from Salem, Massachusetts helped to build the new nation's economy by carrying cargo back and forth from the West to Asia. The historic buildings, wharves, and reconstructed tall ship at this nine-acre National Park tell the stories of the sailors, Revolutionary War privateers, and merchants who brought the riches of the world to America.
It’s a good place to stop when walking around Salem. I found it interesting and the US Park ranges always impressive which their knowledge. It’s lonely lacking 5 stars because of it size. But the cost is free and you have to love that. Off season may be a issue.
No tours during off season & only thing open was the Custom House. Beautiful scenery tho.
