Newburyport, Mass., has a long and illustrious history as a maritime trading center. Historic preservation has been key to the city’s successful economic revitalization.

Audrius Kontautus, a professional architect and preservationist, along with his wife, Debbie, committed themselves doing their part by restoring the Old Mechanic No. 2 fire barn.

Built in 1837, the firehouse has also seen use as a fish market and bakery. A formal living room is located on the second floor where the firefighters used to hold town meetings. After finishing the dirt floor basement, Debbie had the perfect place for a wine cellar. The kitchen and formal dining room are on the third floor of the old firehouse.
