Sticking to Its Roots
New Bedford, MA was based in the whaling industry in the early 19th century and was considered one of the most important whaling port cities in the world. As a true seaport and coastal city, New Bedford is still rooted in the fishing economy, but has since derailed from its whaling roots.
Nevertheless proud of showcasing its story, New Bedford has nine legally protected historic districts to preserve the culture of its history. The majority being residential, these districts portray how manufacturers, whalers, whaling merchants and other individuals during these prominent times lived. Furthermore, the great architectural styles that make New Bedford so unique and quaint are brought alive through restoration projects by a local preservation group known as the Waterfront Historic Area League (WHALE). Some projects even date back to 1790!
