Famous Artist Home: The Stone Jug

The Stone Jug is the former home of Fitz Henry Lane, the famous landscape painter.  The house is on a hill in the Harbor Loop of downtown Gloucester.  Prior to the urban renewal blitz that hit Gloucester in the '60's the stone jug was tucked into the dense little neighborhood where Pew Court used to be.  

Note to self:  Become a famous artist and long after your dead, your name might be spelled wrong for a hundred years, and your misspelled name might appear on a sign perched atop an international amenities placard.  I've never been inside the stone jug. Maybe I will take a summer vacation and visit some of the sites of Gloucester, including this stone jug.
