Newburyport & Amesbury 1959 Directory Remember your favorite places and business. 1959 was the year most of the businesses we all remembered from the 70’s began. Ok, I have no idea, but it sounded good. For educational purposes I will be uploading this directory for all to chime in on.

I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to this site, and those who keep coming back for more updates. NBPTMa.com has gotten a great review from Dennis Metrano from Wicked Local (Newburyport).

Finally a good city decision. As home owners abutting rail road tracks were lengthening their yards for years…along comes this idea! Old Rail Road Tracks. This should also be part of the Newburyport Rail Trail. Currently it is not. View NBPTMA.com in a larger map
Coming soon. She read my fortune back in 1989 and actually got some huge things correct. This is my death sentence, but according to Madame Jean I have a long life line on the palm of my hand…wow! That translates into updating and fighting hacks and spam on this site for a hell of a […]

Since 1957 WNBP has been broadcasting to the greater Newburyport area. Growing up this was the only station my parents listened to. I believed it was the only station on the planet. We always listened in the morning for snow cancellations- hoping the Nock Middle School or the Belleville School would be closed. Later as […]
Visit the first NBPTMA.com page in 2007. I wanted to keep it simple, but it wasn’t to be! I actually wanted it to be just one page that would contain all the information you’d ever wanted to know about Newburyport MA during 1950 -1990. Initially it was 1960 until someone emailed me something regarding 1955. […]
