Since 1938, this park has preserved the wharves and historic buildings associated with Salem's prosperous years of overseas trade.
Soon after the United States achieved independence Salem ships were sailing around the world and opening new ports of trade in the Far East. By the year 1800, overseas trade had made Salem the sixth largest city in the United States
Today you can revisit Salem's maritime glory by touring this National Historic Site, as well as other historic sites in the city.
