The Archives

The Cape Ann Museum's Archive contains documents, books, maps, newspapers and ephemera dealing with the personal, business, legal, educational, social and religious affairs of Gloucester and Cape Ann from its inception to the present day. While most of the material relates directly to Cape Ann, the area’s centuries old connection with foreign lands through its maritime commerce make the records global in scope.
