Town of Swampscott Resources

 

 

.

 
Swampscott is a small picturesque seaside community north of Boston.  It is home to many Boston commuters, a large number of whom board the Boston bound train each morning from one of the last remaining Victorian-style railroad depots in the country.  Many other interesting buildings of  historical value are situated in the town, including Marian Court, formerly known as White Court, the summer residence of President Calvin A. Coolidge 
and the  Georgian Revival-style building that now serves as the Town Hall, which was the former residence of Professor Elihu Thompson, founder of the General Electric Company. 
 

Swampscott's beaches, with their refreshing ocean breezes, attract visitors of all ages during the hot summer months.  Fisherman's Beach provides a pleasant view of Swampscott Harbor with its many brightly colored fishing  and pleasure vessels.  Swampscott's contributions to the fishing industry are the inventions of the Swampscott Dory and the lobster pot; both used by fishermen world-wide. (Narrative supplied by community.)
