Also known as the Gloucester Fisherman’s Memorial, this iconic statue is often confused with the classic image of the Gorton’s Fisherman.

The bronze statue is eight feet tall on a five-foot granite base. Gloucester bills itself as the “America’s Oldest Seaport,” and the monument was completed in 1925 to honor 300 years of Gloucester losing fisherman. Inscribed on the base is “They That Go Down To The Sea In Ships, 1623-1923.”  Read more about the statue here.
