Synopsis: Manchester-by-the-Sea is known today for its historic summer colony, made famous by the rich and illustrious seeking relief from the sweltering city. Its sandy beaches, rocky irregular coastline, and cool breezes provided the perfect habitat for massive summer cottages. Presidents, ambassadors, Brahmans, and robber barons escaped, with a full staff of servants, to an exclusive enclave where they romanticized an idealized past. Prominent artists captured the idyllic environment on canvas, the most famous being Winslow Homer's painting of Singing Beach. Originally farmers, the first colonists learned to build boats, fish, and trade along the coastal waters, becoming clipper ship captains in the late 18th century. Located on Boston's famous North Shore, Manchester-by-the-Sea remains a quiet, isolated place enjoyed by residents and tourists alike.
About the Author: Stephen Roberts Holt’s roots in Manchester-by-the-Sea date back to 1626, when one of his ancestors built a home at Jeffrey’s Creek. Successive generations continued to build and shape the town, and in 1880, Roberts and Hoare, builders of Manchester’s Gilded Age estates, was founded by his great-grandfather. Holt is a distinguished architect whose firm is in Manchester-by-the-Sea.
