About Marblehead:

Steeped in History, Marblehead is alive with over 200 homes and buildings that predate the Revolutionary War. Tour several historic mansions with tales of rugged fisherman, intrepid mariners, enterprising merchants, skilled craftsmen, self-reliant women and courageous seamen—all of whom played a crucial role in America’s struggle for Independence. You can tour all that stuff, or you can go bouldering instead! Check out the routes at Castle Rock, Brown's Island, Crocker Park, and several other hidden gems.
