The NPT winter 2020 newsletter is hot off the press
...and available in cool, easy-to-read PDF format HERE.

In this issue:

- NPT's Annual Meeting Feb. 23 will recap 2019 advocacy efforts ... and preview 2020 plans. This year's all-member Annual Meeting will be Sunday, February 23, 2020, 4 p.m., at the Riverside Cafe, located at the rear of the Towle Building, 260 Merrimac Street, Newburyport.

- Preservation Week 2020 scheduled for May 15-17. This year's theme is "The Mills of Newburyport: The Dream That Ran out of Steam," a theme that encompasses not only the architecture of the city's mill buildings past and present, but also the interwoven histories of steam mill technology, entrepreneurial speculation, immigrant labor, neighborhood growth, the evolving economy, and more recent adaptation and preservation.

- Preservation advocacy explained. A brief article presents the rationale for preservation advocacy at City Hall, and a crystal-clear diagram clarifies the process. Included is summary of 2019 advocacy efforts.

- The beginnings of an archive for the NPT Historic House Plaque Program. With 45 historic house plaques mounted --- and research for more applicants in progress --- the accumulated research now has a home at the Newburyport Public Library Archival Center, and a summary-to-date on the NPT website.

- Bricks 'n Brews. A thirst for knowledge and more drew a crowd to RiverWalk Brewery in Newburyport on January 23 to enjoy a lively and informative presentation by Mike Welch on the history of bricks and brick construction.
