USCG Station Gloucester
Welcome to United States Coast Guard Station Gloucester. Station Gloucester is located on historic Cape Ann, Massachusetts. The station was completed and put into operation in 1901. The original position for this station was given as "Old House Cove, westerly side Gloucester Harbor." The station was discontinued in 1934 as a result of requirements to retrench in the face of budget reductions, but was back on the list of active stations in 1935. The station remains in operation today, now located on Harbor Loop in downtown Gloucester, and serving the maritime community in the nation's oldest seaport.
