If you come to Gloucester this is a must see. They are now finishing up the walkways to and from the Monument with flowers and railings. The heart of this is the names of all the lost sailors listed on the monument. It makes you reflect. The Harbor is in front of you perfectly safe and calm. Gloucester's history is... More

Such a simple tribute to all the fishermen that lost their lives on the sea. Notably, the history from each year, each tragic story can be remembered by the name of the fisherman and the year that person lost their life. Not to forget the movie, the perfect storm was filmed there. I would like to see be there on... More

The Gloucester Fishermen's Memorial Monument is a moving tribute to all the fisherman who have lost their lives. The movie the Perfect Storm with George Cluny told one of these stories of lives lost at sea. While you are visiting the Gloucester fishing community, take a moment to see the names listed on this moving tribute.

I live in Gloucester, so I might be biased! The Fishermen's Memorial Monument is situated along "The Boulevard", which is a walkway along the harbor. The fishing industry has been struggling and it has had a great impact on many of the people of Gloucester ... so the memorial is important to those whose families earned a living through fishing....

The memorial monument is well presented. Nice statue of a fisherman which captures the imagination. Informative information explaining the history and more than 5,000 names listed of sailors who have lost their lives in tragic circumstances. Worth taking the time to visit.

Who comes to Gloucester and doesn't visit the famous Fisherman's statue on the Boulevard? Sure, I live here, but I want to make certain that all who come to town see this beautiful statue of a fisherman at the wheel gazing out to sea. (I first saw a picture of it in my history book in Connecticut) You are sobered... More
