About Amesbury-Salisbury

In 1637 the first English settler in the Salisbury- Amesbury region, Zachary Davis, crossed the Merrimack River from the new settlement at Newbury, built a log cabin, and began to clear the land for cultivation. Beginning as a modest farming community, it developed an aggressive maritime and industrial economy. Shipbuilding, shipping and fishing were also important. Amesbury and Salisbury are home to 5 lobstermen landing 62,734 pounds of lobster annualy.
