OUR SEASIDE VILLAGE
At the northern-most tip of Cape Ann, and a mere 37 miles from Boston, sits the picturesque seaside village of Rockport. Settled in 1690, Rockport quickly became the leading supplier of granite as evidenced by the many outcrops of its old quarries.
Today, Rockport boasts a thriving artist community and some of the most widely painted sea and landscapes in the world. A red fishing shack on Bradley Wharf in Rockport, known popularly as “Motif Number 1”, has for years been one of the most famous sites on Cape Ann as the subject of hundreds of paintings and photographs, and is visited by aspiring artists & tourists alike from all over the world.
