This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Cape Ann, Massachusetts with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- King Charles named Cape Ann in honor of his mother Anne of Denmark
- The English colony at Cape Ann was first founded in 1623
- The 1755 earthquake remains the largest in the history of Massachusetts reading approx. 6.0-6.3 on the Richter scale
- The traditional Cape Ann dory is still being built and raced.
Interesting factoid: Cape Ann is a rocky cape in northeastern Massachusetts on the Atlantic Ocean. It is located approximately 30 miles northeast of Boston and marks the northern limit of Massachusetts Bay. Cape Ann includes the city of Gloucester, and the towns of Essex, Manchester-by-the-Sea, and Rockport. It also includes the easternmost part of Beverly. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
