The club was born in the last part of the 19th century, a time when most people in Newburyport were no longer looking to the sea for their livelihood and when seafaring and shipbuilding had ceased to be a viable occupations. There have been many members listed from all different walks of life.
In 1913 the member list reveals occupations ranging from Ice Dealers, Engineers, Machinists, Silversmiths and Shoe-cutters, Undertakers, Carpenters and Cabinet Makers, Boat-builders, all the way to Bakers and Painters. The Boat Club has its roots in being a “working man’s club.” While the jobs of the past have changed, the history has not.
Without a history, without a certain community spirit or common goals, a place is just a location and nothing more. But the North End Boat Club is more than just a nice spot off the Merrimack River. Members and guests have long met here for boating, fishing, athletics, relaxation, socializing, and much more.
