Did you know That there is a Terminal Moraine at Dogtown Square?

Ejay Khan Writes-

Did you know

That there is a Terminal Moraine at Dogtown Square?  A terminal moraine, also called end moraine, is a moraine that forms at the end of the glacier, called the snout. Terminal moraines mark the maximum advance of the glacier. A moraine is any glacially formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris (soil and rock). Moraines may be composed of debris ranging in size from silt-sized glacial flour to large boulders. The debris is typically sub-angular to rounded in shape.  In other words, this is a pile of glacier poop.

The Annisquam Stagecoach

Ejay Khan writes-

Did you know that the stagecoach began service to and from Annisquam in 1849 and ceased operation in 1893 when trolleys took over. The stagecoach office was located on Washington St. James Cunningham ran the stagecoach line between Annisquam and Gloucester until the Civil War broke out in 1861 and he became the first lieutenant of the 32nd Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteers. This stagecoach is located upstairs at the Annisquam Historical Society (old fire house) in Annisquam Village (can’t figure out how they got it there).
