NPS Stop 38-Site: Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site: https://www.nps.gov/sair/index.htm
Saugus Iron Works was interesting to visit. They have a number of original buildings and as you walk around the property you can almost image them in operation. When they are fully open, they have demonstrations and interpretive programs. I would love to come back here and watch the process of turning raw materials into iron.
NPS Stop 39-Site: Salem Maritime National Historic Site: https://www.nps.gov/sama/index.htm
Salem, Massachusetts was one of the early ports where goods were imported and exported. The ‘Custom House’ still stands at the site but was closed during our visit. We wandered around and read the story boards and viewed the replica of the Friendship merchant vessel docked in the harbor. There is a lot of history in this port including the Salem witch trials.
