Lynn Heritage State Park is a history-themed state park in downtown Lynn, Massachusetts, that is part of the Metropolitan Park System of Greater Boston and associated with the Essex National Heritage Area. It opened in 1986. Exhibits in the visitors center (Lynn Museum) highlight the city’s industrial past, the tradition of shoemaking and its transition from a handicraft to mechanization, and the story of Elihu Thomson, an engineer and inventor instrumental in the founding of General Electric. The park offers guided tours and a self-guided walking tour and includes the nearby 4-acre Waterfront Park, located at Lynn Harbor.
I am quite familiar with the area as I moored my boat in the marina adjacent to the park.
I worked at the creamery a few miles down the road.
