Amesbury River Walk 2-20-16

Amesbury is one of Massachusetts’ northernmost towns, along the Merrimack River. It was a mill town, famous for making horse-drawn carriages (nickname = “carriage town”), and hats. The mills are now converted to apartments and condos. Many of the old homes in town are classic Victorians with mansard roofs, turrets, gingerbread decoration. Should have stopped to take photos of the prettiest.

There’s also a bike-path/walk along the Powwow River, part of the Coastal Trails Network. You can follow the trail all the way to Salisbury or Newburyport and out to Plum Island where the Merrimack meets the Atlantic.

Just a few photos of the historic mill dam/falls, and the Powwow through the trees.
