WELCOME TO CAPE ANN!

E

ach year, the Cape Ann Guide & Directory serves as a valuable resource for our community, providing residents and visitors alike with insights into all that the region has to offer. In this 2020–2021 edition, you will find descriptions of our amazing beaches, harbors, marshlands, parks and trails. We spotlight the people of Cape Ann who are responsible for our proud maritime heritage, unmatched arts scene, extraordinary cuisine, lively music and entertainment, and a variety of activities across our four communities of Essex, Gloucester, Rockport and Manchester-by-the-Sea. Visitors to Cape Ann are discovering something those of us who call these communities home have long known—this region offers wonderful experiences throughout the year. Those here in the fall can enjoy one or more of our autumn events or simply celebrate the colors of the season. Winter brings a full schedule of holiday events and activities and an opportunity to take in the quiet beauty of Cape Ann. And in the spring, we mark the return of the boats to our shores and the entire community preparing for the summer. The members of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce are another remarkable part of our region. We are proud to represent the businesses and organizations that help make all this possible for visitors and residents. I am honored to serve the members of the Cape Ann Chamber as its 2020 president and to support its work on behalf of the community. Please spend some time exploring the comprehensive listing of businesses and other organizations here to serve you. This Guide & Directory is a reflection of the Chamber’s place within the Cape Ann community. You will see we are committed to making visitors and residents aware of our extraordinary people and places and our many events and activities. But our commitment to Cape Ann goes much further. We work with our businesses to make them stronger and grow their contributions to the community. And we bring those business together to support the cultural, educational and economic issues and opportunities important to Cape Ann. In 2020, the Chamber celebrates a milestone that spotlights all this—the opening of a new office and visitors center. Our move to a larger facility in one of the most traveled areas of Cape Ann allows us to better serve visitors, residents, businesses and community leaders. If you’ve not visited our new location on Harbor Loop, please make it a point to do so. In closing, I would like to address a topic that is unique to us all this year—the COVID-19 crisis. Our community, like others around the world, has great challenges as a result of the pandemic. It is my hope that as you read this, we are all on the path to recovery, and that going forward, Cape Ann can help lift your spirits. Our community’s response to COVID-19 has been remarkable—a reflection of the amazing resiliency Cape Ann has shown throughout its history. All of the stories, information and insights you’ll see in the 2020–2021 Guide & Directory only begin to capture what is special about Cape Ann. The more you explore our region, the more you come to better to understand why Cape Ann is such an incredible place to live, work and visit.

Be sure to visit the Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum for a bit of history and browse Essex’s famed antique shops for treasures. Essex has more restaurants per capita than any other town north of Boston. So, relax and enjoy a fresh seafood dinner as you reflect upon your perfect day.

CAPE ANN

Gloucester is proud to be America’s oldest working seaport. Learn all about Gloucester’s maritime history with a visit to the Cape Ann Museum, or view today’s working fishing boats with a simple walk on the inner harbor.

Just minutes away are Gloucester’s famous beaches, hiking trails, outdoor recreation, restaurants and winter recreation. Finally,

Just under an hour north of Boston, Cape Ann offers stunning beaches, waterfront recreation, eclectic dining options and a wealth of authentic New England experiences.

And then there are the people… whatever the season, experience Gloucester’s art and culture scene. Peek into an artist’s studio on Rocky Neck, visit the North Shore Arts Association or take in a play at the Gloucester Stage Company.

ROCKPORT The charm of Rockport escapes no one. It’s the quintessential New England town whose harbor features what’s regarded to be one of the most-painted buildings CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

in America—Motif No. 1. Just a stone’s throw away are Bearskin Neck’s small shops and eateries just waiting to tempt and delight you. Throughout Rockport’s downtown you’ll find captivating and unique art galleries, and you’ll soon understand why artists and visitors alike have fallen under Rockport’s spell. In the midst of it all you’ll find the worldclass Shalin Liu Performance Center featuring classical music, opera, or pop

performers. Look just beyond the center and you’ll find the wide-open Atlantic Ocean calling your name.

MANCHESTER-BY-THE-SEA You can hear music in the name of this small seaside town, and perhaps it is no coincidence that the town’s signature attraction is Singing Beach. The beach is perfect way to start your day, followed by a visit to the downtown shops and galleries. Take a stroll through Masconomo Park with ice cream in hand as you leisurely gaze at fishing boats passing through the harbor. Visiting in the winter? Try winter hiking at Coolidge Reservation or check nightlife calendars for live music and cozy spots to enjoy dinner and cocktails.

ite destination for seafood lovers. Woodman’s is the birthplace of the fried clam, an Essex classic, yet there’s something to delight every taste in “New England’s Restaurant Capital.” Even kids will be satisfied while adults relax with a cocktail on an outdoor deck or enjoy Sunday brunch and live music on the Essex River as you watch a parade of boaters cruise by. During May through October, there are many options for exploring the Essex River. Glide with the tide on a kayak tour, or, if stand up paddleboarding piques your interest, rent a board or take a lesson. If fishing is more your speed, stripers are a favorite catch aboard local charters. Daily narrated river cruises describe the area’s history, exceptional bird-watching, wildlife and locations of past Hollywood movie sets. For an unforgettable experience with family and friends, charter a private tidal beach clambake and dine on a sandbar. The sunsets are glorious. Your options abound on land as well: yoga or hiking, biking and bird watching your way through miles of conservation trails will connect you to the great outdoors—and you can take part in nature workshops, too. If golf is your passion and you’re up for a challenge, play the nine holes at Cape Ann Golf Course. The par 3, 7th hole has been recognized in North Shore Golf Magazine as one of the “Top hardest holes on the North Shore.” CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

History buffs will enjoy two amazing historic collections: the hands-on exhibits at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum and the wonderful American folk art at Cogswell’s Grant. The museum’s exhibits tell the story of how this small town built close to 4,000 wooden vessels over 350 years, supplying many fishing schooners for the Gloucester fleet. A bit farther down the banks of the river, Cogswell’s Grant presents its art collection in a charming 1728 farmhouse, offering a rare look at painted furniture, redware, hooked rugs, weathervanes and decoys displayed throughout the home. Like all of Cape Ann, Essex is enjoyable to visit in the autumn, winter and spring. Popular fall events include the ClamFest and Turkey Trot. Essex River Race, nature hikes and Art in the Barn enliven the spring. Most restaurants and antique shops are open year round and you’ll take advantage of off season lodging rates.

Just a five-minute walk from the museum is Masconomo Park, featuring a community bandstand for fun summer concerts, a baseball field and the playground. Take a seat on one of the park’s many benches and enjoy the sights and sounds of this beautiful New England harbor (helpful hint: There are approximately 20 public parking spaces in the town parking lot behind the police station and two-hour street parking spaces along Beach Street). If you prefer ocean to land, charter an overnight boat complete with a captain! Check out Frayed Knot Sailing Charters for charter opportunities and sailing lessons throughout Cape Ann. If you’d rather enjoy the ocean from the shore, Singing Beach is Manchester’s crown jewel. While parking at the beach is for residents only, you can ride the commuter rail into Manchester and walk to the beach, or bike into town. Walking to the beach is very popular—families strolling to Singing Beach is a sure sign of summer. Another sign? Manchester’s annual

ROCKPORT W

HEN DESCRIBING THE FOUR TOWNS COMPRISING CAPE ANN, IT’S easy to use the same words over and over: unique, charming, quaint, picturesque, etc. Writers strive to find new descriptions that “paint the picture” (pun intended) and spark your imagination while avoiding the trap of clichés. One wonders, though, if it was actually Cape Ann that inspired those words to begin with. Rockport, located at the tip of the Cape, and its jaw-dropping views of the Atlantic and stunning coastline, will simply take your breath away.

Robert M. Ring Photography

Similar to Gloucester, European settlers in the early 1600s identified the waters off Rockport as a fertile fishing ground and settled there, beginning industries in granite, timber and fishing. If you walk or hike through Halibut Point State Park, you’ll come across the old granite quarries, still impressive today. Pack a picnic because you’ll find a great spot to enjoy more incredible views of the Atlantic. Rockport’s history as a magnet for artists holds true today. You’ll find a thriving community of artists and galleries—not

to mention incredible talent. If you’re a seasoned collector or just beginning, you could spend days roaming in and out of the studios and galleries along Broadway, Dock Square, Main Street and Bearskin Neck, meeting the artists and watching them work. As you roam you’ll also discover excellent restaurants (from hot dog shacks to lobster in the rough and fine dining), weathered storefront cottages and, if you wander Bearskin Neck to the top, you’ll arrive at the ultimate spot for a selfie—with the vast Atlantic as your backdrop.

WHAT’S NEW • Newly restored Visitor Center at Halibut Point State Park • Completion of Millbrook Meadow restoration Music and performance are plentiful throughout the year along with many special town events. In the summer, there are free concerts at the Back Beach Bandstand and Fourth of July celebrations; in the offseason there are fun spring and fall festivals. The Shalin Liu Performance Center offers a yearround program of opera, classical, pop, jazz, film and more. And the holidays? “Christmas in Rockport” will become your new family tradition. Festivities include fairs and shows, strolling musicians, and special offers for holiday shopping. Even in the fall and winter, the beaches are no less inviting. There is something so beautiful about a seaside town in the midst of a gentle snowfall. When booking lodging, you’ll have many options to consider—from intimate inns to family-friendly hotels. There’s something for every need, budget and “view preference”—whether overlooking a beach, the Atlantic, or a pleasant, treelined side street, you’ll understand how hard it is to avoid the clichés.

Good Harbor Beach is one of the most popular beaches in New England. While there are several places on Good Harbor where you can take the perfect Insta-pic, the most Instagrammable spot would have to be in front of the house that sits on Sherman’s Point—The Sherman Cottage. Once belonging to the King of Siam, the house has become one of Gloucester’s most painted and photographed spots— just see for yourself.

HAPPENED UPON AN OLD POST CARD THE OTHER DAY SHOWING MAGNOLIA’S OCEANSIDE HOTEL, CIRCA 1931. The Oceanside is no longer here, of course, along with most of Cape Ann’s grand seaside summer hotels and cottages from that bygone era, but the image sparked my imagination. I have always enjoyed looking at vintage post cards of familiar places, seeing all that has changed and what has endured. And the messages on these cards to friends and loved ones can transport one back to an earlier time. So, if it suits your fancy, I invite you—via some recently discovered cards and letters—to come with me on a brief tour of Cape Ann’s villages and neighborhoods. Let’s begin in Lanesville…

A POSTCARD FROM LANESVILLE

John Abisamra

Dear Martha, I wish you could see how beautiful it is in Lanesville right now. I drove down to Lane’s Cove to catch a sunset the other day and there was a clear view across the bay all the way to Mt. Agamenticus and the Iles of Shoals. So much has happened since you left. The breakwater has been repaired and the old fish shack on the pier has been restored. The Folly Cove Designers are featured in a permanent exhibit at Cape Ann Museum, and a group is now working to preserve Paul Manship’s home and studios and quarries, to celebrate his sculpture and support today’s artists. The village looks pretty much the same as when you had your florist shop, with a new cafe and bakery where the Grind used to be. Plum Cove is still a popular beach, especially for divers and families with young children, and is always a big draw for its summer sunsets. We miss your Sunday dinners and summer cookouts and seeing you at the shop, and all of us send our love and greetings from Lanesville. Lanesville today.

A LETTER FROM PIGEON COVE

courtesy of Emerson Inn

vintagerockport .co

I was recently given a quite transcendental opportunity to make a return trip to Rockport’s Pigeon Cove village, a place where I had spent a very pleasant summer stay with my family many years before. As you can well imagine much has changed, but I was pleased to see that its rugged coastline and verdant woodland paths are still much the same as I remembered. The village’s granite-edged harbor supports a small fleet of lobster boats working the nearby waters of Sandy Bay and beyond. Pigeon Cove is also home to a “Paper House” and the Sandy Bay Historical Society’s “Old Castle” which was built in about 1712. I had the pleasure of staying at the same inn where we once before stayed, and was flattered to learn that it is now named in my honor. Just steps away from the inn is Cathedral Ledge, at the edge of the sea, and from this point one can walk for miles along the ocean and enjoy a delightful picnic lunch on the flat rocks. And just a short trek from the harbor and inn will bring one to Windhover Performing Arts Center, home to a summer dance festival, and Halibut Point State Park, with its panoramic ocean vistas. In my estimation this park rivals Walden with its abundance of flora and fauna, but on that subject I most certainly must defer to you. I was able to make my return journey to Rockport and Pigeon Cove by rail and by foot, taking the Fitchburg line from our dear Concord to Boston’s North Station and thence along the Rockport branch to its terminus. The walk from Rockport’s rail station to Pigeon Cove was a mere twenty minutes, passing old quarries and lovely views of Sandy Bay along the way. Since you and I were last on Cape Ann some other amazing modes of transportation have also been developed, including the automobile. I do hope that you will have a chance to return as well someday, and if you do, and by whatever way you arrive, please be sure to record your visit in Pigeon Cove today. your journal. Yours faithfully, Waldo E.

Dear Henry,

Dear Grammy, I took a ride along Shore Road the other day, and as always seems to happen, it brought back warm memories of our summer visits to Magnolia so long ago. Your home is still there, though it seems a little smaller than I remembered it to be. The old pier is being completely restored, thanks to an amazing fundraising effort by Magnolia residents and support from the city. Lexington Avenue is still a lovely boulevard, and once again vibrant with restaurants and cafes, galleries, shops and spas. It has several businesses now that specialize in lifelong health and wellness. And all summer long, Magnolia has a weekly Farmers’ Market along Lexington that has become a really popular community social event. Hesperus Avenue now has some new seaside homes where woodlands used to be, but the path to Rafe’s Chasm is still there and the views of the chasm and Norman’s Woe and over to Eastern Point are just as you knew them. Hammond Castle has been renovated and features educational programs and many special events. Ravenswood Park is now managed by The Trustees and is more beautiful than ever, and its Magnolia Swamp Trail is still one of the best places to find the native sweetbay magnolias that inspired the village’s name. After a summer hike through Ravenswood, I often circle back to Magnolia village for one more drive along Shore Road, past the beach and Kettle Cove, by the pier and your house, just to take in the views and feel the cooling ocean breeze once again. I think of you often and hope that you are doing well. Magnolia today. CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

A POSTCARD FROM MAGNOLIA


A POSTCARD FROM ROCKY NECK TO NELL BLAINE

Though we never met, when I head over to East Gloucester, I often find myself thinking of you. Karen has told me many stories of how you painted at your summer home and studio overlooking Rocky Neck—your still life paintings of flowers that she had delivered from her mother’s shop, or views of Wonson’s Cove from your window. I know you have been away for many years now, but I think that you would be pleased to know that Rocky Neck still thrives as an artists’ colony and now features a Cultural Center with spacious galleries for exhibits and special events. The cove is still filled with boats of all shapes and sizes all summer long, and plein air artists at their easels work to capture the shapes and colors of Cape Ann as you did so evocatively from your window. Today’s visitors to Rocky Neck by land or by sea can see artists at work in their studios, shop at the village’s galleries and gift shops and dine at the water’s edge. And while I know that you no longer can spend your summers here, it is reassuring to know that everyone can experience and enjoy your paintings as part of the Cape Ann Museum’s permanent collection. This postcard from a fan is just my way of saying thank you for making our world a more beautiful place with your art. Rocky Neck today.

A POSTCARD FROM CONOMO POINT IN ESSEX

Ken Riehl

Dear Mom, Yesterday was one of those crisp, cold, bright January days, the kind of day that I like to take a ride over to Conomo Point. It was low tide and despite the cold, the clammers were out in force. Some had taken their boats across the river to the mud flats in the bay while others just walked along and were digging on this side of the river. The boats and floats have long since been hauled out, of course, waiting for spring and summer to return. But I think in many ways Conomo is at its most beautiful this time of the year. The summer cottages are shuttered up, put to bed for the winter, so all of one’s attention is drawn to the river and tidal creeks and saltmarshes that are just as awe-inspiring as the day you first came here. Some of the houses are gone now, and the town has built a lovely little park where “Land’s End” used to be. It has a deck and benches, making it an even better spot for viewing sunsets all year round. In the summer boats still fill the mooring field off the point, and there is a steady stream of traffic up and down the river. There is a great sailing program for children, with a new fleet of small boats. I even see a classic turn-about every once in a while. And Front Beach has become a popular summer destination for local children and their families. Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards have taken the place of jet-skis since you last visited. And we have our own little boat now to take up river, into the creeks and over to Crane’s a few times every summer. Our memories of the good times together at Conomo will last forever, and we will always be grateful to you and Dad for discovering this very special place and making it part of our lives. Your loving son. Conomo Point today.

CAPE ANN PLEIN AIR:

CELEBRATING THE ARTS AND OUR COMMUNITY

F

OR THE FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR, CAPE ANN PLEIN AIR (CAPA) BROUGHT dozens of premier artists to the birthplace of outdoor painting, spotlighting this annual fall event as one of the nation’s top art competitions. Forty juried artists painted “en plein air” across the Cape Ann communities of

Gloucester, Rockport, Essex and Manchester-by-the-Sea. A highlight of CAPA 2019 was the Cape Ann Plein Air Gala, a sold-out event that brought together artists, visitors and local supporters for an exhibition of the artwork created for the competition. More than $20,000 in prizes was awarded, and many of the masterpieces on display that night were sold. For 2020, the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic meant that the CAPA team needed to change direction in their planning. This year, Cape Ann Plein Air will have a two-pronged approach, with a virtual online event planned for the week of October 3–11,

26

CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2020–2021

2020 and a fully planned, weeklong event during the week of May 23–30, 2021. Both events will feature the 2020 juried slate of 35 CAPA artists. The online event will feature in-depth looks at the 35 artists. Additionally, there will be online demos, lectures, galley tours and, of course, the opportunity to purchase paintings from the featured artists. The website will be brimming and social media will play an important role in bringing the artists to our audience. May 2021 will be a complete plein air event with the 35 artists coming to Cape Ann for a week of painting, demos, dinners and celebrations, culminating with a Gala sale and Quick Draw. Like years past, this is an opportunity to meet the artists, enjoy a meal with them, watch them create their art and buy their completed works. Awards will be given at the Gala, and the whole art community is invited to participate in the Quick Draw. “CAPA is a remarkable experience for everyone—artists, art lovers, the Cape Ann cultural community, local residents and visitors to the region,” said Mike Storella, CAPA Board President.

“It is especially encouraging to see the participation of local businesses and others throughout the community,” added Ken Riehl, CEO of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, one of CAPA’s creators. “2020 brought a whole set of issues and with them we created new opportunities for the artists and arts patrons,” said Cape Ann Plein Air Executive Director Susan Gould-Coviello. “By having our online event during the traditional week of CAPA in October, we stay in the minds of art enthusiasts, and holding our live event in May 2021 ensures we will be able to hold events safely. Imagine a whole new season in which to paint! Spring on Cape Ann is just beautiful.” Cape Ann’s arts legacy is wellestablished, but CAPA 2019 demonstrated that our community—artists, art enthusiasts, businesses and residents—continues to build on this proud history. And with our unique approach to CAPA 2020, one can expect to see the next exciting milestone on this journey, as the Cape Ann community comes together to welcome these artists and visitors to the region, to preserve and promote our arts legacy, and to support our vibrant creative economy.

CAPE ANN

PROFILES BY EMILY S. BASS and RITA A. FUCILLO

T

HERE IS NO QUESTION THAT CAPE ANN IS FAMOUS FOR ITS DRAMATIC LANDSCAPES, ITS PRISTINE BEACHES and, according to local artists, a quality of light to rival Venice. Yet, its people tell a story to rival the scenery. Historically drawn by the sea and Cape Ann’s safe harbors, today an extraordinary mix of people call Cape Ann home. Here are five conversations with local notables that offer some insight into the people who carved a distinct way of life from the Cape’s granite shores.


CAPE ANN PROFILES: T.M. NICHOLAS

“A

t some point I’m going to make a living as an artist and today’s the day,” T.M. Nicholas recalls telling himself years ago. “I forget exactly when that was,” he laughs. Nicholas is, by his own admission, not very good with dates. He is, however, an extraordinary painter, as is his father, Tom Nicholas. Together, they are beloved on Cape Ann for their talent and devotion to the region they have called home since Tom and his wife Gloria first moved to Rockport in 1962. The stories and laughter they shared could fill a book. Tom Sr. is as witty as his son, yet both are surpassed by Gloria’s gift for storytelling. Listening to the three of them reminisce and chronicle their careers, and the history of art on Cape Ann demands a visit to the Tom Nicholas Gallery in Rockport. T.M. Nicholas (left) and his father, Tom Sr.

“Some people…don’t really know that [artists are] still here, doing it. That [art is] contemporary.” The gallery, now celebrating its 59th year, is staffed by all members of the Nicholas family and you’ll be as enthralled by the art as by the conversation. Tom Sr. began drawing with his mother at his dining room table and “all through school, that was the only thing I was good at,” he laughs. He was encouraged by teachers along the way and studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Gloria recalls that when she met Tom, their “Sunday dates were in the attic while he painted!” His compulsion never waned. Tom Sr. first visited Rockport when he was 15. The car he and a friend were riding in broke down, right near a garage on Dock Square, and while the car was being fixed, Tom Sr. became smitten with the town. Five years later, he introduced Rockport to Gloria just as his career was taking off. Grants sent him abroad; shows in New York sold out; and in 1962 he and Gloria moved to Rockport and opened the gallery. When T.M. was just three and a half Gloria recognized that he shared his father’s gift and supported his pursuit. Knowing the rather solitary road that lay ahead, she and Tom Sr. encouraged T.M. to “enjoy high school, sports and friends because once CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

you start working as an artist,” Tom Sr. explains, “you’re pretty much alone.” When did he realize his son was ready to study seriously? “He would ask his father,” Gloria shares, “When are you going to teach me?” “That’s what I was waiting for,” says Tom Sr., beaming. T.M.’s studies took off. “I told him, ‘I’m going to leave you alone but I’m going to give you discipline. He was terrific from the beginning.” What was it like, learning from a master who is also your father? T.M. knew that “the doors will open because of my father’s name, but once I get through them, it’s harder. I have to prove myself twice as much.” Yet he adds that studying with his father “outweighed any disadvantages from trying to get out from under his shadow.” Gloria adds the punchline, “Now people come into the gallery and say, ‘Oh, his father paints?’” Neither father nor son ever considered another career. T.M. taught art and held other part-time work until things clicked. Both have exhibited all across the country; have traveled and painted the world; and have established a collector base that easily filled a recent show at Gloucester’s Cape Ann Museum, entitled Tom and T.M. Nicholas: A Fa-

ther and Son’s Journey in Paint. Comprised of more than 40 paintings, it’s the first museum show the Nicholas men have had together. T.M. describes the experience as “surreal” and an “honor.” Exemplifying the traditions of the Cape Ann School of Painting and showcasing the mastery with which both men approach the canvas, the show connects with art patrons of every age and experience level and tells a beautiful story. “Some people think about art and artists as some distant historical thing that happened years ago.” T.M. explains, “They don’t really know that we’re still here, doing it. That it’s contemporary.” Today, Tom Sr. doesn’t paint as much yet he’s “at it once in a while. I’m semi-retired,” he laughs after 60 years. T.M. after nearly 40 years, is as obsessed as ever and still travels to paint. “I like the regimen of just painting away, day after day. The long hours.” And Cape Ann, he adds, “has everything for a landscape painter…the harbor, farms, marshes, ocean.” “And the one thing that everybody likes about Cape Ann, the light,” adds Gloria. Tom Sr. interjects with a smirk, “The light shines everywhere. I don’t think there’s a difference. The light’s the light, you know,” he laughs. CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2020–2021

CAPE ANN PROFILES: LENNY LINQUATA

W

hy do we find ourselves drawn to a particular place, whether for a vacation, a second home or to relocate? We often ask, “Who are its people, who will I find when I get there?” Gloucester’s remarkable growth as a destination is based on its history as a working seaport and fishing community and with this storied heritage comes a long list of salty characters and family legacies. Lenny Linquata, owner of The Gloucester House Restaurant and Blue Collar Lobster, and his family are among, well, the saltiest! Linquata has spent his entire life in the restaurant business and takes a few minutes from his long day to share a few of his family’s stories. “I grew up on the

“Gloucester is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and is truly unique.” docks and in the restaurant,” says Linquata. “The restaurant business is hard, and you have to be constantly adapting to be successful.” This has certainly been the case—this now-iconic restaurant opened in 1958, and the family’s impact on Gloucester dates back much farther. Linquata begins at the beginning: “My grandfather, Leo, arrived here from Sicily when he was 2 years old at the turn of the century.” Leo Linquata, like many fellow immigrants, began fishing out of Gloucester as a young boy to help support his family, and worked his way up to captain of the family fishing boat, the Natalie II, a converted WWI sub-chaser. “He was a true entrepreneur,” recounts Linquata, “and a man of many accomplishments.” In 1930, Leo left fishing and with partners started the Progressive Fish Wharf. He became the owner of the company and at the height of production was buying a million pounds of fish a week and shipping around the country. In 1957, he bought Gloucester’s Tupman Thurlow Fish Wharf, now known as the Seven Seas

Wharf, supplying oil to the fishing fleet via his other company, Progressive Oil. “It was my Dad, Michael, who wanted to build a restaurant on the property. Following his return home as a decorated WWII veteran, he took over the Progressive operations and opened the restaurant in 1958,” says Lenny. “I came aboard as treasurer after graduating from college, and then took over as manager. My Dad was brilliant at promoting, and the restaurant did very well until two major fires in the early ’80s. Those were hard times for us; we had to scramble and get inventive, focusing more on the lobster business just to survive.” About 10 years later, in the fall of 1991, the “no-name storm” hit and seriously damaged The Gloucester House’s wharves. The Pub—now Blue Collar Lobster—followed shortly after the wharves were repaired, and the Compass Rose Function Room was completed in 2006. “One of the hardest yet most fun times was in the early 2000s,” Linquata says, laughing, “when we turned the dock into Fun & Games and

created Café 7 Seas, for kids and families. We did some really crazy things: crab racing on the dock and blind dory racing in the harbor, even some Velcro sumo games for adults—the dock was packed and that’s how we paid for the bar and events room.” Today, Lenny wears many hats around the restaurant, from cooking behind the line, to creating new seafood dishes, to ensuring functions run smoothly. He has a passion for politics and local history and is an award-winning raconteur. With his wife Dottie by his side as office and events manager, Lennie and the entire Linquata family are part of the bedrock of Gloucester’s tight-knit community and are beloved for their devotion to Cape Ann. Linquata reflects, “Gloucester is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and is truly unique: tranquil wooded trails, beautiful beaches, rocky vistas, a working harbor, renowned arts and culture, and the people. I love the people. They are incredibly generous and diverse—everyone supports each other and gets along…like family.” CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


CAPE ANN PROFILES: ALLEN ESTES

W

hen we met, Allen Estes sported a broken-in denim jacket and flannel shirt, straight out of his song “Old Plaid Shirt,” inspired by the modest uniform worn daily by his grandfather, father and himself. Allen has found success as a singer/songwriter, both in New England and Nashville, writing for music legends including Shania Twain and Dolly Parton, in addition to releasing his own songs. Yet for someone with such accomplishments, he remains incredibly humble. Music has always been a central part of Allen’s life: His mother was a classically trained harpist, his father a piano- and guitar-playing “hillbilly kind of guy,” and together they played in a band during Allen’s childhood. Years later, Allen and

“A lot of people like me have moved here—it’s a community that embraces the arts.” his brothers also formed their own band The Estes Boys, influenced by the gospel, bluegrass and country music that played in their home. In the ’80s, Allen moved to Nashville to explore his songwriting but just 10 years later he found himself drawn back to the north and the region’s coastal culture. He says, “I loved being down there, and I loved that creative community, but the area didn’t have my heart. I was born in Maine. I loved the ocean and the mountains. I’m a New Englander.” Upon moving to Cape Ann, Allen threw himself into researching Gloucester’s history and found a new source of inspiration. His 2019 album Carnival Man, a rock record with country, folk, Americana and bluesy tunes, is packed with references to Cape Ann. Nautical lyrics ring throughout each song, from “Our Humble Queen of the Harbor,” written in memoriam to a friend, to “Good Harbor Beach Song,” which describes the healing power of letting the ocean wash away your worries. The song “Not With Ya Hands,” with the refrain “You row with ya heart, not CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

with ya hands,” tells the story of Gloucester native Howard Blackburn, a man who personifies Allen’s own core principles of hard work and perseverance. In 1883, Blackburn lost his fingers to frostbite, having rowed several days to Newfoundland after being lost in a winter storm. Allen says, “When I moved to Gloucester and saw all the artists working alongside the blue collar folks and fishermen, and everybody getting along and respecting what the other does, that’s what made me want to dive into that history.” This interest in Gloucester’s vibrant communities inspired Allen to create his own local cable TV show, “Local Music Seen,” where he interviews Cape Ann musicians about singing and songwriting. He exudes admiration and respect for Gloucester. “Any given night of the week in summertime you can park right here on Rogers Street or Main Street and you can walk to 10 different restaurants and bars and see everything from reggae to blues to classic rock. And there’s hardly ever a cover charge. That makes Gloucester really unique, and because of that, a lot of people like me have

moved here—it’s a community that embraces the arts.” The idea behind Carnival Man can be traced back to “a sense of place,” which Allen defines as not just a landscape but the people who call it home. “A sense of place” ties each element of the album together, from the lyrics to the musicians and producers with whom Allen partnered. “Good Harbor Beach Song” features a number of Gloucester-natives, including Mayor Sefatia Theken, Senator Bruce Tarr, Rhumb Line owner Fred Shrigley, Aurelia Nelson of 104.9 FM and many other local musicians. The album was recorded and mixed in Gloucester’s own Bang-A-Song Studios. “Working with other people from Gloucester was always a part of the record. I wanted to keep it as local as possible, because there’s a lot of talent to choose from here. I would never say, ‘I could’ve picked someone better on guitar—I wanted someone from Gloucester.’ They’re all right here.” At the end of the day, everything Allen does comes down to humility, community and respect for the hardworking people that make Gloucester special.

CAPE ANN PROFILES: CLIFF AMERO

C

liff Amero, owner of Essex River Cruises and a clambake aficionado, is passionate about steamed clams, the classic component of a traditional New England lobster dinner. “We have a hot broth that we serve with them, and actually some people drink that. And, of course, butter. Nothing wrong with a lot of butter.” If there’s anyone you can trust for a good clambake tip, it’s Amero. He’s been trekking out to the sands of Tidal Beach in Essex to serve up seafood since 1992, when he founded his cruising and chartering business in his native Cape Ann. Nearly 30 years later, Amero still cruises the Essex River, now alongLeft: Cliff Amero. Right: Captain Alex (left) and Captain Jesse.

“[ The Essex River is] an insanely beautiful area. People are really stunned when they see it. It’s almost like a postcard from every view.” side two trustworthy captains: his son, “bake master” Captain Alex, and nephew Captain Jesse. Together, they’ve experienced some of the region’s most natural wonders. A typical trip with the Amero family entails sightseeing, rare bird spotting and people-watching as the boat passes by the local fishermen who spend their afternoons lobstering and clamming in the sun. On special occasions, Amero has seen whales and dolphins in the waters. The most surprising creature ever spotted on an Essex River Cruise? Deer. “People don’t know they’re actually great swimmers,” he explains. “That’s how they get out to Hog Island. They’ll live out there.” And that’s the beauty of a day on the water with the Ameros. You never know what you’ll see, what you’ll do or who you’ll meet. They offer specialty voyages—chowder and brew cruises, a romantic sundown cruise, a National Rosé Day cruise, and a cider and donut cruise in the fall through Ipswich’s

Russell Orchards (Amero won’t admit to having a favorite cruise, yet hints to being a classic beer and cider guy). Classic is a fitting term to describe Amero. He’s a classic New Englander, a classic family man and a classic seafaring, gentleman sailor. He grew up locally in Massachusetts, spending his days taking on traditional and not-sotraditional hobbies. When he was younger, he got into fishing and discovered a particular love for lobstering, even building his own traps at one point to secure a superior catch. He has also been an avid surfer all his life—“one of the originals in the area.” For Amero, surfing and captaining a ship are surprisingly similar undertakings, “because you have to watch the wind and the tides” and have a knack for understanding the waters. Be it the ocean or the river, Amero is drawn towards the water with a gravitational pull. Yet the Essex River remains his favorite. “It’s an insanely

beautiful area. People are really stunned when they see it. It’s almost like a postcard from every view.” And, take his word for it, there are plenty of views to take in. On a trip down river, cruisers can tick off dozens of Cape Ann’s beloved, signature sights: the nearly 10 islands dotting the area (Hog Island the largest among them), the backside of Crane Beach, the salt marsh farms, the old shipyard and even a beach made out of clamshells. “It’s called Clamshell Beach, of all things,” he chuckles. Although he could take his boat and cruise away, venturing across the Atlantic to explore foreign lands or embarking on a never-ending trip around the world, Amero is at home on Cape Ann. He is eternally enamored—and content—with his surroundings. “I like the nature and how you can have your alone time on the many beaches. That’s the draw: It’s real ‘New Englandy,’” he says. “Especially the Essex River.” CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


CAPE ANN PROFILES: LIZ BROWN SWANSON

I

n 2017, the Brown siblings—Liz, Pamela, Jennifer and Dean—opened their own store in the neighborhood they were raised in, Manchesterby-the-Sea. They named their shop 4 Beach Gifts & Goodies, a nod to both the building’s address and the nickname it earned when they were growing up. The building has a long history in the Brown family, longtime entrepreneurs in the Manchester community. The Browns owned a grocery store in town for 75 years, Brown’s Market, where Liz and her 25 (yes, 25) cousins worked together growing up. Her father came to own several other properties around town, and today 4 Beach finds its home in the same building Paul Brown Real Estate operated out of for Siblings Dean Brown, Liz Brown Swanson, Pam Crehan and Jennifer Brown.

“We really focus on made in the USA, made locally, fair trade goods.” four decades. Liz remarked, “There were four kids. And growing up when my parents worked there and had the apartment upstairs, we’d always say ‘Oh, she’s headed to 4 Beach.’ So for us, it’s about carrying on the tradition of that name.” The Browns carry these family traditions into every aspect of the shop—even the door to 4 Beach is painted a bright yellow in honor of their father Paul, whose favorite color was yellow and “only wore yellow sweaters.” The Browns uphold the tradition of hard work set forth by their parents and grandparents—an ethic shared throughout the region of Cape Ann. The siblings have other responsibilities in addition to their work at 4 Beach— Pamela is a nurse, Jennifer is a mom, Dean stayed in the grocery business and Liz is a reporter who splits her time between California and Massachusetts—yet they each have symbiotic roles at the shop that ensure that day-to-day business runs smoothly. In some families, working togethCAPEANNVACATIONS.COM

er this closely creates tension, the Browns thrive in this environment. Liz says, “We’ve strengthened our bonds through this shop.” Liz is the buyer, “Because I’m the oldest sister, so they listen to me,” she laughs. She focuses on making sure there is more than just the “something for everyone” variety of gifts. 4 Beach highlights Manchester-by-theSea swag, toys, stationary and even a selection of old fashioned candy. “We really focus on made in the USA, made locally, fair trade goods. We have high school students make necklaces and we have a local potter from Manchester.” Attention Cape Ann artists! Liz adds, “We welcome any local artist to bring their wares to us, always.” When it comes to locally made products on Cape Ann, historically known as an arts destination and home to numerous art colonies, galleries and studios, Liz says, “There’s no shortage of goods out there to choose from.” Before the Browns opened 4 Beach, there was a void of sorts in Downtown Manchester that was once filled by

Zak’s, a well-loved gift shop, regarded as an institution in Manchester-bythe-Sea for 30 years. When its owners retired, that reliable spot to find just the right gift at just the right moment had vanished. The Browns took notice and thought, “Why not us?” Liz adds, “The woman who owned Zak’s for years shops at our store, and gives us the thumbs up. I always tell her ‘You had 30 years to get it right!’ We’re only two and a half years in, so I’m honored when someone says ‘This feels like Zak’s!’” Additionally, Liz co-hosts a show on Cape Ann Cable called “Scoop Manchester” where she shares the town’s stories and promotes local happenings. To her, Cape Ann is special because it’s a complex place, home to entrepreneurs like her family as well as artists and musicians, blue-collar workers, and those who make their living on the water. She says, “I love the layers. It’s just layers to me of interesting people in this neighborhood… and everyone knows each other still. I’m really grateful that I grew up where I did.” CAPE ANN GUIDE & DIRECTORY 2020–2021

IX ICONIC LIGHTHOUSES STAND GUARD ALONG THE CAPE ANN coastline protecting seafarers from rocky shores and shoals. They offer historians and romantics alike a glimpse into Cape Ann’s maritime lore and legacy. Lighthouses are a comfort to mariners to this day, and despite the use of GPS and electronic aids for navigation they still symbolize home and safety.

GLOUCESTER Annisquam Harbor Lighthouse White light flashing every 7.5 seconds with red sector. Annisquam Harbor Lighthouse (Annisquam Light) was erected in 1801 to mark the entrance to the Annisquam River at Wigwam Point, a popular Native American summer encampment. The river connected Ipswich Bay to Gloucester Harbor following the construction of the Blynman Canal. Annisquam Light’s wooden frame was replaced with the existing 41-foot brick tower, with a focal plane of 45 feet, in

Eastern Point Lighthouse White light flashing every 5 seconds. Eastern Point Lighthouse was erected on Gloucester’s Eastern Point to mark the harbor entrance in 1832. The current brick tower was built in 1890 and is 36 feet tall with a focal plane of 56 feet. In addition to the light, there is a

large lighthouse station, which continues to serve as housing for the U.S. Coast Guard. One of the station’s more famous occupants was Winslow Homer. The noted artist spent a year living at the light in 1880. Although not open to visitors, the lighthouse presents a wonderful view, especially from the vantage point of the adjacent Dog Bar Breakwater. Visitors are welcome to walk along or fish from the flat granite blocks atop this massive quarter-mile long structure, which has protected Gloucester Harbor from storms since 1904. The Massachusetts Audubon Society maintains a small parking area near the lighthouse and breakwater as part of its Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary. Parking is free for members and $10 per car for non-members between Memorial Day and Columbus Day. For more information visit massaudubon.org. CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM


Ten Pound Island Lighthouse Equal interval red light every 6 seconds. This lighthouse is located on Ten Pound Island, in Gloucester Harbor. The light was constructed in 1821 to mark the island and act as a guide for navigating Gloucester’s inner harbor. Rebuilt in 1881 from cast iron with brick lining, the tower is 30 feet tall with a focal point of 56 feet. Visible from many locations along Gloucester’s waterfront, tiny Ten Pound Island proudly housed America’s first Coast Guard station. The light was restored and relighted through the efforts of the Lighthouse Preservation Society. For more information visit lighthousepreservation.org.

foot granite towers (with a focal point of 166 feet above sea level) seen today replaced the original lights in 1861. The two towers, North and South, were constructed and placed so that when a ship puts sights on both towers, they point to true north, allowing sailors

to check and adjust their compasses. The Thacher Island Association provides launch service from T-Wharf in Rockport Harbor to the island during the summer months, with advance reservations. For more information visit thacherisland.org.

Straitsmouth Island Lighthouse (Straitsmouth Light) was built in 1835 to mark the entrance to nearby Rockport Harbor. The present brick lighthouse was built in 1896 with a height of 37 feet and a focal plane of 46 feet above sea level. The relatively small lighthouse is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard, but is owned by the Town of Rockport including the 1.8 acres upon which it sits. The rest of the 31-acre island is owned by the Massachusetts Audubon Society as a bird sanctuary. For more information visit thacherisland.org.

Also known as Cape Ann Light Station, the Twin Lights are the only fully operational multiple lights on the coasts of the United States. The South tower has a red light flashing five times at 20-second intervals. The North tower has an amber steady light which is maintained by the Thacher Island Association as a “courtesy” memorial light to mariners who have passed away. The original 45foot towers were constructed and lit in 1771 making them among the oldest of America’s lighthouses. The stout 124CAPEANNVACATIONS.COM
