The Marblehead Salt Co. is located in the small coastal Town of Marblehead.
Founded in 1629 less than 20 miles North of Boston, Marblehead is the Birthplace of the American Navy.
On September 5, 1775 the Hannah, under orders from General George Washington and command of Captain John Glover, sailed out upon North Shore waters to "seize such Vessels as may be found on the High seas or elsewhere, bound inward and outward to or from Boston in the Service of the ministerial Army."
In 1912, it also became the Birthplace of Marine Corps Aviation.
