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.
