The Salem Harbour

Salem Harbour is a harbour in northeastern Massachusetts spanning an area north and south of Salem. Historically the Salem Harbour was the site of one of the major international ports in the colonies. During the American Revolutionary War, merchant ships were enlisted as privateers, an important role to augment the ill-prepared Continental Navy.

Now the harbor is used for commercial and recreational purposes.

Currently, there are hot debates surrounding the decision to close the Salem Harbour Station, a 60-year-old coal-and-oil-burning power plant in favour of building a natural-gas plant on the site.
