Marblehead is a picturesque seacoast town steeped in history. In its
early years, fishing and the shoe industry were its two main sources of
income. Today it is mainly a residential community with some minor
industry and a few unique retail stores.
While Marblehead has been know through the years as the "Birthplace
of the American Navy", in recent times the town has also been known
as one of the yachting capitals of the world. Pleasure boating is
certainly a popular pastime of its residents.
Visitors come from all over the world to view the original of the famous
painting, "The Spirit of '76", which is housed in Abbot Hall in
the office of the Board of Selectmen, as well as to see the beautiful
harbor crowded with sailing, fishing, lobster and pleasure boats. Another
major attraction for visitors are the narrow crooked streets in the
Historic District, lined with Colonial and Victorian buildings, some of
which have been placed on the National Register.
The town offers residents and visitors a series of events in the course of
the year, including an arts festival, tall ships cruise, regatta and race
week, jazz concerts and Christmas walk.
It is located in eastern Massachusetts, bordered by Swampscott on the
south, Salem on the southwest, and the Atlantic Ocean on the west, north,
and east. Marblehead is 18 miles northeast of Boston; 22 miles southeast
of Lawrence; 92 miles south of Portland, Maine; and 235 miles from New
Narrative compiled by the Massachusetts Department of Housing and
Community Development (DHCD).
