Backstory


Settled in 1693, North Berwick was originally Kittery Commons, and later separated as “Berwick” in 1713, then separated as North Berwick in 1831. The town name is derived from Berwick, England. It began as a small mill town, and over the years grew into a manufacturing hub after the railroad arrived to North Berwick in the mid-1800s.
