Nestled within Gloucester are the quaint villages of Lanesville, Annisquam and Magnolia. Located between Ipswich Bay and the historic woods of Dogtown, Lanesville, with its proximity to abundant, cod-filled waters and granite quarrying, rose to prominence during the 1800’s. Today, many local artists call the area home and gather for such annual events as the Lanesville Music Festival and Art in Lanesville exhibition. Annisquam, an early fishing and shipbuilding center, is located just minutes off scenic route 127 and boasts the Annisquam Harbor Light Station, established in 1801, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. Just above Manchester lies charming Magnolia, home to Hammond Castle Museum.
