A return visit: 'Benjamin Franklin' actor will perform tonight at Firehouse

Published on 10/28/2015

American icon Benjamin Franklin was in Newburyport yesterday, and for 309 years old, he was looking spry.

The historical figure was “visiting” the city as part of a promotion of the Greater Newburyport Village. He is scheduled to perform tonight at 7 at the Firehouse Center for the Arts.

Never one to withhold an opinion “after due consideration,” the onetime lawmaker and diplomat held court about his previous visits to this community. 

Our Village is a member of the Village to Village Network,
a national organization which provides information, encouragement and peer support to
similar villages in 200+ communities across the country.
