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.

Bumblebee Crowdsourcing - a Citizen Science Project
Dr. Robert Gegear, WPI

Our native bees are under increasing threat. Be part of the solution by joining bumblebee researcher Robert Gegear in his Bumblebee Crowdsourcing Project. Well begin with a short presentation on bumblebee behavior, ecology and identification. Then you will put your new knowledge into practice in the gardens, collecting data on our local bumblebee species. This citizen science data will be used to help in bumblebee conservation efforts and can be continued in your own backyard.
