This historic building, built as a Markethouse and Lyceum by the citizens of Newburyport in 1822, served as the Central Fire Station from the mid-1800s until 1980.
A cooperative effort by the public and private sectors has restored the structure as a center for the arts and public events so that it will continue to serve the community for generations to come.
