The Marblehead Chamber of Commerce and Marblehead Museum & Historical Society will be two of the local organizations receiving $58,000 in mini grant funding as part of its mission to encourage the 34 cities and towns of Essex County as a tourism destination, the North of Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau announced recently.
The Chamber plans to use its grant to produce the 2023 Marblehead Visitor’s Guide & Map, while the Museum will use its grant to produce rack cards.
The program is funded through a portion of the funding the North of Boston Convention gets from the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism.
“We are happy to assist in these multimedia projects designed to draw more visitors to the north of Boston,” said Nancy Gardella, executive director. “Our organization and members have been working tirelessly to bring individual travelers and group tours to Essex County. We want to recognize these champions in our industry.”
