Discovering Dogtown

Dogtown, Dogtown Road

Gloucester, MA 01930

Join Mark Carlotto and Shep Abbott as we explore Dogtown. This colonial Cape Ann settlement has been abandoned since 1830 and today offers many stories as well as miles of trails that traverse almost 3,600 acres. Shep, the former director of Artspace, and Mark, who has produced a new trail map and guide book of Dogtown, have led many hikes into Dogtown. They will share what they have uncovered from meticulous explorations of this fascinating place connecting the history of human settlement with the natural forces that have shaped Cape Ann. Mark will have his book, “The Dogtown Guide” available for sale ($12). Dress for the weather, sturdy shoes, long pants!
