Newman Farm Meadow and the abutting Newbury Lower Green are steeped in more than 350 years of local history. The Newman Farm Meadow, conserved in the face of encroaching development, consists of old field and pastureland. The open field is proximate to other tracts of conserved land, including Old Town Hill Reservation across Newman Road.
The adjacent Newbury Lower Green is the site where the town's first European settlers landed in 1635. Given its extraordinary historical significance, the Lower Green and its surrounding pastoral landscape was listed in 2010 by Preservation Massachusetts as one of the state's 10 most threatened historic sites.
The area’s extensive historic, cultural and natural resources tell the story of the region’s role in the nation’s early settlement, maritime trade and industrialization.
