ABOUT THE 400 STORIES PROJECT
Throughout history human have kept a tradition of passing on history, heritage and some pretty tall tales through the art of storytelling.
We’re launching the “400 Stories Project”. It’s our mission to collect 400 Stories of Gloucester from our founding citizens until today. Stories that will aim to make you laugh, cry, or just feel a little more connected to this place we call home. The project was created to honor everything that makes Gloucester our home and celebrates our 400 years in the making.
The story ideas can be about any topic - the stories of the men and women who our our history. The artists, laborers, farmers and fisherman who made this hearty community…Tell your own story, born here or a new arrival. Interview your second grade teacher, your next door neighbor, your grandparents or your childhood friends. Please just do it in a safe way, pick-up the phone, use Facebook or Zoom.
