Carriagetown Car Show
During the early 1900s, Amesbury, Mass., carriage makers began to build bodies for cars made by Stanley, Cadillac, Hudson and others. From about 1900 to 1930, Amesbury was known as “the Detroit of the East.” As part of Amesbury’s 350th Anniversary Celebration, the Amesbury Carriage Museum has recruited a collection of “Amesbury-bodied” cars that will be on view during the Sunday, July 1, Carriagetown Car Show. The free show begins at 9 a.m. and will run until 2 p.m. In case of bad weather, the show will be rescheduled to July 8. In addition to this collection of historic cars, the streets of downtown Amesbury will be lined with more than 200 restored automobiles from the 1980s and much earlier. This has become a very popular event with car enthusiasts and the general public. Market Square, Friend Street, Main Street and more will be filled with cars.
