Welcome back to Gloucester. You can read the first article on this area by Clicking Here. For those of you that watch television, I am told this is the setting of a show called “Wicked Tuna.”
Although Gloucester was the first settled area in Massachusetts, residents soon moved to Salem because the soil was more fertile there. But the great natural harbor pulled them back and this became the country’s first viable seaport.
Colonial Massachusetts had a requirement that any town with over 100 families have its own school system, and records show that Gloucester complied with this in 1698. So this has been a thriving community since well before the American Revolution.
