Natural beauty, historic roots, quaint seaside living – all just 17 miles north of Boston.
There’s a real sense of place in Marblehead – a sense of belonging. The town, founded in 1629, is one of the first established in America. From the beginning, Marbleheaders have been independent – The Spirit of ’76 painting, which resides in Abbot Hall, says it all.
Marblehead captures the charm of New England with its beautiful North Shore beaches and views of its harbor and the ocean beyond. Historic Old Town offers boutiques, galleries, antique gift & specialty shops, museums, and Colonial-era homes and buildings.
Once a fishing village, sailboats now fill the harbor as yachtsmen travel from around the globe to compete in renowned sailing races – Marblehead is the yachting capital of the world.
Stroll along the narrow, charming streets lined with grand homes built centuries ago. Bite into a Joe Frogger-Marblehead’s own famous molasses cookie. Visit historic sights such as Fort Sewall, Jeremiah Lee Mansion and the Old Powder House.
Marblehead is everything you’d expect from a tight-knit coastal community – the quintessential seaside retirement dream.
