This is an ongoing project of the Newbury Historical Society. Our goal is to encourage research into and appreciation of the diversity of architectures and to tell about it in our programs and publications. The efforts of the committee for the Historic House Marker Project have included assisting property owners' effort to authenticate the date their houses were built and any other historic information pertinent to the house and property. The original committee, chaired by Diana Morris, provided the homeowners with historic markers made by the late Rich Cole. The current House Marker List includes 30 historic houses and two town owned historic properties, namely the Town Hall in South Newbury, and the Train Station building at Newbury harbor.
