https://www.nps.gov/esse/index.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essex_National_Heritage_Area The Essex National Heritage Area is composed of all of Essex County, Massachusetts, including 34 cities and towns, 9,968 sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places, 26 National Historic Landmarks, 9 state parks, and 2 National Park Service units. The Essex National Heritage Area begins just 10 miles north of Boston and covers 500 square miles of eastern Massachusetts to the New Hampshire border. The Area includes hundreds of historical sites, miles of intact landscapes, glistening coastal regions and lifetimes of rich experiences that chronicle the history of our region and of our nation. Heading north of Boston, Interstate 93 and state Routes 1 and 1A traverse the length of the ENHA. South from New Hampshire, take Routes 1, 3 and Interstates 93 and 95. West from the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90), take Interstates 495 north or Interstate 95/Route 128. From the northwest, take state Route 2. The Essex National Heritage Commission has placed brown highway signs on all major roads to guide visitors to local sites and visitor centers. They are easy to see and easy to follow!
