Inside the Babson Cooperage, 1935

This is the interior of the Babson Cooperage in July of 1935. Looking at the household implements, you wonder what some of them were used for. I believe this was part of the original Babson House, the kitchen.

  • I can’t wait to take my husband, son, and daughter here. After doing reseach, I found out this is the home of my husband’s 10th great grandparents, James Babson and Elinor Hill. i was just in Gloucester…I wish I knew this then. Is this the stone building on the way to Rockport? I have seen that many times and did not realize the connection to our family. My favorite story is how their son Ebenizer, killed the bear and skinned it to protect his nephew, Henry Witham when he was attacked. This act gave Bearskin Neck, in Rockport it’s name.
