BARNS AND OUTBUILDINGS
Outbuildings are integral to the historic character of many Newburyport buildings. Beyond their architectural
value, these secondary structures contribute to the overall spatial and visual character of individual sites and
the historic district as a whole. Typical outbuildings include barns or carriage houses or small residences built
at the same time as the house.
Make every effort to retain historic barns and other outbuildings, including original or later historic
doors, windows, siding, and roofing materials. Replace in kind any portion of an outbuilding or
garage that is damaged or deteriorated beyond repair. Match the original or later historic feature
in design, material, dimension, sash or panel configuration, detail, texture, and color. Retain as much
original or later historic fabric as possible.
. In conversions to other uses, respect character-defining features, such as window and door
fenestration and architectural trim.
