The oldest fishing port in America, Gloucester has a proud history with the sea. A fishing museum as well as an art museum, we are committed to preserving the famous stories of Cape Ann's mariners for generations to come.
Indeed, fishing remains an important part of the local economy. Fishing also remains one of the most dangerous professions, as demonstrated by Sebastian Junger in his book The Perfect Storm. (The movie by the same name was filmed in Gloucester.)
