Overview

Motif No. 1, a red fish shack, sits at the end of a granite pier in Rockport, Massachusetts. Built in 1873, Motif No. 1 has been made famous by artists such as John Buckley and Aldro Hibbard, and Motif No. 1 Day is now celebrated each summer in Rockport. Author Lawrence M. Vincent narrates the shack's colorful past and its relationship to fisherman, artists, locals and tourists from its origins to the present day. Arguably one of the most painted buildings of its time and a truly iconic representation of coastal New England, Motif No. 1 has been both a witness to history and a reflection of it.
