The City of Amesbury has a long history of innovation, entrepreneurship and art. As you walk through our revitalized downtown, you'll see old mill buildings which used to house our textile-makers, iron workers and carriage builders. Now these buildings are home to restaurants, shops, residences, offices and artist studios.
Amesbury was incorporated in 1668, and our more than 350 years of history are showcased through our historic homes, museums and sites.
We welcome you visit us and see all that Amesbury has to offer. We are conveniently located at the junction of I-95 and I-495, at the border of Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
Parks & Recreation
We are very proud of our green space, our parks and our recreations areas in Amesbury. We have trails to explore, outdoor youth programming, beaches and boating. We also have a beautiful, paved Riverwalk for pedestrians and cyclists which runs from our downtown area through to Salisbury, Newburyport and beyond. Governor Baker has provided guidance about boat ramps across the Commonwealth during the COVID-19 outbreak, which you can read here.
