Happy #Massachusetts Day! What better place to celebrate our beautiful state’s history than at Salem Maritime!
When the United States was young, Salem acted as a hub of international trade. Sailors, merchants, and privateers, from far corners of the world journeyed to the Salem wharves we enjoy today.
The exotic, luxury goods brought from China, Brazil, Russia, and other distant lands were taxed by the U.S. Customs Service, here at the Custom House. This trade and taxation helped build the foundation for one of the most powerful national economies in the world.
For this and many other reasons, Salem holds a vital part of Massachusetts’ and our nation’s history. What part of our collected history do you enjoy learning about?
Thanks for sharing this awesome photo, @hellosalem!
Found a bit of wild wheat growing on top of Penobscot Mountain in Acadia. I thought it might look good with the sunset. The only problem was I had to hang upside down off of a rock to get everything lined up.
