Gloucester Doors- Captain Elias Davis House

The Captain Elias Davis House is part of Cape Ann Museum.
From the Cape Ann Museum website-
“The Captain Elias Davis house, built in 1804 by one of Gloucester’s successful sea captains, is part of the Cape Ann Museum.Six of the house’s 12 rooms are open to visitors. The house is furnished and decorated in keeping with domestic life in the early 19th century.

Many of the objects in the house actually belonged to Elias Davis and his descendants: a drawing of the Davis family crest from County Hereford, England; a portrait of the Captain painted c.1790 by an unknown Antwerp artist; the outfitted medicine chest and instruction book used by Captain Davis in his role as ship’s doctor; passports for two Davis family vessels, the ship Cadmus and the brig Augusta, signed by James Madison and John Adams respectively; the rockerless wooden cradle used by Elias Davis, Jr. aboard ship when he traveled with his parents; a sampler stitched by Captain Davis’s daughter Mary, naming all 13 of the Captain’s children; and a pencil drawing of the house itself, done from memory by son Soloman Haskell Davis in 1830 while he was away at sea…….. click this text to go to the Cape Ann Museum Website and read the rest
