Saugus, MA – Salem Maritime and Saugus Iron Works National Historic Sites reopened to the public today. Visitors can now access the visitor centers, bookstores, restrooms, grounds and historic buildings located at both sites. Free ranger-led tours for the visiting public and school programs for local students have resumed normal October schedules. Both Salem Maritime and Saugus Iron Works have been closed since October 1 due to the lapse in Congressional appropriations.
