The NPT fall 2021 newsletter is hot off the press

... and available in cool, easy-to-read PDF format HERE.

In this issue:

- Historic House Buyer's Guide informs new homeowner-stewards. NPT's new guide is an information-packed brochure prepared especially for those exploring the purchase of an older home in Newburyport.

- Advocacy update: Long-simmering cases still demand NPT's pro-preservation stance. Preservation advocacy before city boards is nobody's idea of fun, but despite "battle fatigue," the commitment to preservation values and the common public interest sustains energy among a few.

- Historic House Plaque Program: A steady flow of new participants ... and a new interactive map. The program continues to grow. Check out the new interactive map --- you can now scroll, scale, sort, and read plaque text for all the properties in the program to date.

- Annual William Lloyd Garrison Lecture is December 10. "The Gospel According to Garrison: Anti-Racism and the American Truth" will be presented by Edward Carson, Dean of Multicultural Education at The Governor's Academy in Newbury on Dec. 10, 7 p.m., at Old South Church, 29 Federal St., Newburyport. The event will also be simulcast via YouTube.

- Massachusetts Preservation Conference. One online conference presentation included a reference to Rev. George Whitefield, a revered historical character in Newburyport.

Words not necessary. A fall scene on Winter Street.
