Hammond Castle Arch Rededication

Hammond Castle Museum held a special observance yesterday to mark their successful restoration of the beautiful 12th and 13th-century medieval archways that overlook the ocean. These newly restored arches flanked our 21st-century tent for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

I was pleased to present a Massachusetts State Senate citation recognizing this historic project. The Castle has so many dimensions to be shared and treasured and the stewards of the Castle are to be commended. I know that the museum was delighted to showcase the structures and to express gratitude to the Gloucester, Massachusetts Community Preservation Committee for support and funding from the Community Preservation Act. 

With: Mayor Greg Verga, City of Gloucester, and Gloucester Preservation Committee members Kerry McKenna, Jane Remsen, Matt Lundberg, and Mark Poulin
