  Conservation Law Foundation - Founded in 1966, the CLF is now the largest, regional environmental advocacy organization in the country. Serving New England, this non-profit group is comprised of attorneys, economists, scientists and policy experts that work on the most significant threats to the national environment of the region and the health of its residents.
Of special interest to the Society for High Street members are these popular citizens guides:  
National Register of Historic Places - The place for the official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation. The National Registry is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect our historic and archeological resources. Look up the Cushing House and even Newburyport itself! 
Historic Massachusetts, Inc. - The statewide, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the commonwealth's cultural and historic resources through advocacy, education and community revitalization.
  • In 1999 Historic Massachusetts named Newburyport as one of the state's Ten Most Endangered Resources. High Street is the only street that has ever been nominated by Historic Massachusetts and was used as an example in the conference below... 
  • "When Preservation Hits the Road." - The conference was the first time that Historic Massachusetts has addressed the difficulty that the Massachusetts Highway Department has in dealing with the needs of historic and rural roadways. High Street was used as a case study. 
The Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) - The state historic preservation office. The MHC administers state and federal preservation programs, including historic preservation planning (such as assisting communities with listing properties in the National Register of Historic Places and establishing local historic districts), review and compliance (including implementation of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act as amended), grant assistance, and public information activities. 
Newburyport on the Web - Want to know a little bit more about Newburyport? This is the place. Filled with links to cultural, historical, political and commercial centers of our city, this site is a great place to explore what Newburyport is all about.
