Hammond Castle Museum Opens for 47th Consecutive Season on Friday, April 1st 

Celebrates with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Free Tours on Saturday, April 30th

Museum To Give Back with “Gloucester Gratis Days” 
 Offering Free, Self-Guided Tours on Tuesdays for Gloucester Residents

Hammond Castle Museum opens to the public on Friday, April 1, 2022. The Museum is marking the beginning of its 47th consecutive season with a ribbon cutting ceremony and daylong celebration on Saturday, April 30th, 2022. This season also marks the beginning of Gloucester Gratis Days, offering free tours for all Gloucester residents on Tuesdays throughout the regular season.

On April 30th, the ribbon cutting ceremony will begin at 10 am and will be hosted by the Greater Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce. The Museum will open to the public from 10 am to 4 pm and will offer free, self-guided tours. Self-guided tours require registration which can be made online at www.hammondcastle.org prior to a visit or upon arrival at the Museum.

In keeping with John Hays Hammond, Jr’s original vision for his seaside, castle-home to serve as a museum offering the Gloucester community access to ancient works of architectural art, Hammond Castle Museum will offer Gloucester residents free, self-guided tours each Tuesday throughout the regular season which runs through the end of October. Self-guided tours require registration and may be made in advance upon arrival at the Museum. They are offered from 10 am to 3 pm to allow for enough time to adequately tour the museum which closes at 4 pm. Proof of residency is required at check-in.

The 2022 season schedule offers numerous opportunities to visit the historic site including weekends in April, November and December. The Museum will open daily beginning in May.  The schedule is as follows:

·         April: Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm

·         May through October: Open daily from 10 am to 4 pm

·         November and December: Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm

This season also brings forth new exhibits. The Spring/Summer rotating exhibit will feature Hammond’s explorations throughout Europe, the Caribbean, and Canada. In the Summer/Fall, the Museum will feature a temporary exhibit on Hammond’s family with a focus on John Hays Hammond, Sr. There will also be a new permanent exhibit on the staff members of the Hammond’s household.  Over the course of the season, Hammond Castle Museum is poised to offer nearly 70 educational and community programs. Returning favorites include Candlelight and Spiritualism Tours and movies on the back lawn to Arms & Armor presentations.  Some new programs include a Day of Puppetry with Vaudeville Puppets, an Animal Adoption Day with the Cape Ann Animal Aid and a New Year’s Eve Ball. 

“So many in the community visited the Museum as a school child, but maybe have not returned since then. As one of their community museums, we want to them feel a sense of belonging here,” said Linda Harvey, executive director.  “It is our hope to better engage our neighbors through our Gloucester Gratis Days. We are not the same museum they may have visited all those years ago,” she continued.

John Hays Hammond Jr., known as “The Father of Radio Control,” was one of America’s most prolific inventors and a protégé of Guglielmo Marconi, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell. Built from 1926 through 1929, and incorporated as a museum in 1930, the castle’s architectural style is a mix of a medieval castle, a French chateau, and a Gothic cathedral. It was custom built to encompass Hammond’s private residence and laboratory, as well as his museum quality collection of architectural elements such as the facades of medieval shops and doorways from French chateaus. Also on display is Hammond’s extensive list of patents and his work with radio control and guided torpedoes for the military.

Hammond Castle Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is not handicapped accessible. The museum offers self-guided and guided tours and numerous educational and cultural events throughout the year. It is also available for corporate and private event rentals. For more information, please contact Hammond Castle Museum at info@hammondcastle.org, 978-283-2080 or visit Hammondcastle.org.

Gloucester Fishing Vessel Message From the Past

WBZ has reported that a message in a bottle tossed from Gloucester F/V Hannah Boden in 1995 has been found in France. It took nearly 27 years for this bottle to be rescued. I found it interesting that the story notes that a dollar is placed in the bottle to entice the finder to pick it up! Story can be found at this link.

The note screenshot from WBZ:
