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.

“We are excited and happy to be back at work and welcome visitors to both Salem and Saugus,” said Superintendent Michael Quijano-West. “Autumn is a particularly special season to enjoy all that these two parks have to offer.” Visitors should check the website of both parks to get detailed operating hours and tour information before departing for the park.
