Prudence Paine Fish is the author of Antique Houses of Gloucester (History Press, 2007 - out of print) and currently produces the blog Antique Houses of Gloucester and Beyond! Raised in a small New England town with a mother who was an antiquarian, Pru was inevitably exposed to "old things." After graduating from UMass/Amherst she lived in Connecticut, taught school, married, and raised three children in suburbia. A move to Newburyport, MA renewed her interest in all things old and furthered her interest in research, writing and consulting. Pru is a volunteer at the Cape Ann Museum and can often be found sharing her knowledge at the Museum's White-Ellery House property when it is open to the public during the summer.
