Description

A walking tour around Marblehead’s earliest principal harbor, from 1629 until about 1700, where Native Americans had summer encampments for hundreds of years prior. Stunning views of the coves and islands at the northeast tip of the mainland peninsula. Early history, social history, fishing history, and some architectural history. Visitors can explore Old Burial Hill afterward, or have lunch at the Barnacle or The Landing restaurants.

Special Instructions: Tour involves walking & standing. A half mile or so total — but same distance back to your car. Tour starts at Grace Oliver’s Beach and ends at Gas House Beach or Franklin St. Street parking on Beacon St. (or on Orne St., near tour end & a half mile from tour start). No restrooms. (Restrooms at Fort Sewall — a 10 min. drive or 20 min. walk from tour starting point, or a 10 min. walk from Orne St.)
