Bartlet Mall, Newburyport, MA 01950

With its long history and its beautiful sea-side location, Newburyport is the quintessential New England town, and during the current decade Bartlet Mall has provided an equally quintessential setting for Greater Newburyport’s stunning Field of Honor® posting of Old Glory. This September 350 U.S. flags will welcome visitors to this annual event that pays tribute to those who have honored the flag through their deeds. Flag tells the stories of veterans, those on active duty, first responders or persons who by their actions have become heroes in our lives.

The Newburyport Field of Honor® display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and thanks by sponsoring a flag or making a donation. Flags sponsored for $40 may be picked-up at the conclusion of the display to be retained as mementos of the inspiring event. Visiting the display is open to all without charge.

Walking amid the formation of flags becomes an experience hard to explain, but never to be forgotten. We invite all to visit the Newburyport Field of Honor® display and walk with us among the posted flags. Don’t miss it.
