Mary Markos’ Gloucester Daily Times article  includes fun facts like this bit about the historic War of 1812 cannonball, along with an important update that the scope of work increased as damage was more extensive than projected. Now, there’s more of an opportunity on the ground to check out the 1775 lantern and bell.

  • Excellent history and goes along with the cannons out on stage forge park too! The stone stairs behind the rock with bronze what a view! Plaques from 1623 and beyond. 🙂 Dave & Kim 🙂
