Maritime History of Massachusetts was produced by the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places and Maritime Heritage Program in partnership with the Massachusetts Historical Commission and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO). It was created under the direction of the John W. Roberts, Acting Chief of the National Register of Historic Places, Patrick W. Andrus, Heritage Tourism Program Manager, and Beth L. Savage, Publications Managing Editor, in cooperation with Carol D. Shull, Chief of Heritage Education Services. Maritime History of Massachusetts is based on information in the files of the National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmarks collections. These materials are kept at 1201 Eye St., NW, Washington, D.C., and are open to the public from 9:00am to 12:00pm, Monday through Thursday.

The itinerary was conceptualized by Jennifer Perunko and Karmen Bisher (NCSHPO) of the Maritime Heritage Program, who wrote the descriptions of each property based upon National Register nominations. Contextual essays were also written by Karmen Bisher. Shannon Davis (NCSHPO) coordinated web production for the Maritime Heritage Program and National Register, designed the itinerary maps and template pages, and edited the itinerary. Jeff Joeckel (NCSHPO) designed the homepage. Thank you to Annie Harris, Essex National Heritage Area; Jeremy D'Entremont,; Betsy Friedberg, Massachusetts Historical Commission; and Christopher J. Nardi, Battleship Cove, and for their contributions and assistance.
