Motif #2

Built sometime around 1810 is the gray house on the marsh of Ebben’s Creek. This was originally the Ebenezer Burnham shipyard workshop and moulding loft.  Across the way is the Cox Reservation which is part of the Essex County Greenbelt Association. Here may local artist come to paint the local landscape.  As a consequence, this building has become known as Motif #2 as some say that it is the second most painted scene next to Rockport’s Motif #1. It is easily viewed from J.T.Farnham’s restaurant on Rt. 133.

I drive by there everyday to work. This is as high as I’ve seen the water get during a storm surge. I’m sure it has been higher in the past, but this is the first time I’ve seen it go right to the front of the house.
