About Newbury
map
The plantation of Newbury was founded as a town in 1635 and is located in the northeastern part of Essex County. Pawtucket Indians hunted and captured seasonal runs before settlers appeared.

As the town grew fishing - weaving - tanning and shoe making as well as small scale ship building became important industries. Farmers would raise cattle and sheep so by 1791 there were over 3000 cattle on the town lands. Around that time the town began to produce woolen goods made from the first American-made wool machines that also included snuff and chaises and slate.

The competition from England's woolen mills decreased the emphasis on woolens which led to the production of cotton fabric and was the beginning of a cooperage which is a machine made nail factory and scythe mill.

In 1844 James Steam Mills was began and in 1850 the railroads were in town, by 1845 45000 pairs of shoes were made. Soon the economy would swing back into agriculture and by the end of the 19th century there was a large shift into dairying. By 1905 instead of shoes there were 450000 gallons of milk were produced and poultry and eggs became a significant business.

Plant lovers and all those who enjoy something different will be able to get up close to hundreds of carnivorous plants exhibited by the members of the New England Carnivorous Plant Society.

Others are from as far away as Africa, South America or even Australia. But these plants all share a common bond: they are carnivorous, which means they survive by catching and consuming other living things - in most cases, insects. More than 300 of these plants will be on display where visitors can see first-hand these unusual plants, and will have a chance to purchase their own from top vendors from the area.

Ikebana Show
The Boston Chapter of the Ikebana International Society presents its biennial exhibition of traditional Japanese flower arranging. This event features many educational opportunities to learn about the mechanics and techniques of ikebana.

What is Ikebana?
Recognized as a sculptural form of art, Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging, has over 300 schools of thought. Sogetsu Ikebana is a three-dimensional artistic expression composed of flower and plant material arranged in a container. Sogetsu promotes an Ikebana of no limits, in which plant materials of any type may be used and displayed anywhere and in any circumstance. Sogetsu does not encourage students to emulate nature; they encourage students to use lines, hues, and masses provided by nature to inspire their own creations. Combining the arrangements with two and three dimensional artwork results in stunning, contemporary installations.
