Salem Maritime National Historic Site
Salem Maritime was established to preserve and interpret the maritime history of New England and the United States. The park documents the development of the Atlantic triangular trade during the colonial period, the role of privateering during the Revolutionary War, and the international maritime trade, especially with the Far East, which established American economic independence after the Revolution.
