About The Paper House

The Paper House is an actual house made from paper.
Newspaper.
It was built by Mr. Elis F. Stenman, a mechanical engineer who designed the machines that make paper clips, began building his Rockport summer home out of paper as a hobby. That was in 1922.

The paper was meant to be good insulation. Eventually, not only was the house made of paper, but furniture as well, including some intricate and beautiful pieces.
For more about the background, read the interview with his grand niece. For an interesting look at what you’ll see, let’s step inside.

Here’s the website- http://paperhouserockport.com/index.html

  • Joey, no Pigeon Cove is still part Rockport but if a visitor to area knew it was in Pigeon Cove it would be easier to find,but what the heck I’m an ole hillbilly from E. Tennessee so what do I know ? When I went to see the house I just walked up there, my sister used to own the little white house just down the street .
