The Bartlett Museum is located at 270 Main Street, Amesbury and began in 1968 as an historical exhibit display for Amesbury’s 300th Anniversary Celebration. It is housed in an 1870 Italianate style building originally Amesbury’s Ferry School of the Ferry District which later became the Bartlett School named after Josiah Bartlett who was born a few houses away. The museum features local history in the carriage industry, old maps, and mementos, a collection of prehistoric and Native American artifacts, memorabilia from Colonial, Federal and Victorian periods, a Natural History Room featuring birds, shells and fossils, an original vintage schoolroom and a carriage shed housing Amesbury made carriages.
