About Ipswich
map
Ipswich Massachusetts was settled in 1625 and is still home to 50 antique houses from the First Period (1625-1725)-more than any other town in New England. Ipswich is situated along Routes 1A and Route 133 and is also accessible from Route 1, which makes it conveniently and scenically located. Ipswich is surrounded by Essex, Rowley, Topsfield, Hamilton and Ipswich Bay.

Ipswich is home to beautiful Crane's Beach and the Crane Wildlife Refuge. The beach is long, clean and loaded with dunes! While in Ipswich be sure to visit Castle Hill with its views and Great House which reflects great wealth. Tours are offered and are an exceptional value. Another quick ride and close by is Great Neck and Little Neck which offers views across Ipswich Bay to Plum Island.

On the road to Crane's Beach you will come upon Russell's Orchard. Here you can pick your own fresh fruit in season (apples, strawberries, blueberries, etc.) or purchase them already hand picked for you. There are also hayrides, farm animals, a winery, an ice cream parlor and one of the best bakeries in the area. Mouth watering home made pies, strawberry shortcake, and cider doughnuts are available and well worth the trip!

DID YOU KNOW: That Ipswich is home to one of the few wolf sanctuaries in the United States? You can actually get close and not too personal with real live wolves living in captivity at Wolf Hollow. While visiting you are cautioned not to look a wolf in the eye or show him your teeth! But relax!! The North American Wolf Foundation contends that the wolf can co-exist with humans and other mammals. They just need to be understood and respected - Don't we all??!!

Full Moon and Folklore Hike
The month of June's full moon is called the Full Strawberry Moon. Local Native American tribes knew it as a signal to gather ripening fruit. We’ll welcome the arrival of summer with fresh strawberries and a celebratory bonfire at the end of our hike.

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 2½ miles. Dress for the weather to maximize comfort and minimize misery! Water is always good to have along. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp; we may ask for moments of total darkness to fully enjoy the moon and the shadows it makes on the dunes.

Recommended for ages 13 & up. Pre-registration required. Please note: Children under the age of 13 are welcome to participate in the Full Moon hikes if they are capable of keeping up with the group when hiking through soft sand and possibly snow for a distance of 1-2.5 miles (round-trip).

Images 15
Images 15 will provide a multifaceted auditory and visual experience for the audience. Gloucester composer Robert Bradshaw has written a musical composition inspired from visual artist John Stobart's paintings of historical maritime and other New England scenes. Stobart's painting was also exhibited to poetry students at Salem State University, and a contest was held for the students to write a poem to be used during the musical performance of Bradshaw's work. Composer G. Paul Naeger derived his musical inspiration from a poem by Aline Blanchard, an Ipswich resident. Ipswich composer Chris Florio, wrote a musical score he gave to his animation students in Boston, who then created an animated interpretation of Florio's work. Local artist Katie McElwain created a series of works inspired from a newly written musical composition by New England composer, Kay Barney. Dancer Anna Lisa Ledson, originally from Ipswich and now working in New York City, has choreographed a dance inspired from composer Warlok's "Capriol Suite" for strings, as well as two compositions by Thomas Palance, musical director and creator of this project. In addition, Palance has written a piece inspired by choreography from Ledson, with the intent to provide a framework connecting the other works.

Full Moon and Folklore Hike
Native Americans named July's full moon the Buck Moon in observance of male deer who, in July, begin to re-grow antlers shed the previous autumn. Other names for this full moon include Thunder Moon, for the month's frequent thunderstorms, and Hay Moon, after the July hay harvest. We might also call it the Armstrong Moon - a nod to astronaut Neil Armstrong's first footstep on the moon on July 20,1969. Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 2 miles. Dress for the weather to maximize comfort and minimize misery! Water is always good to have along. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp; we may ask for moments of total darkness to fully enjoy the moon and the shadows it makes on the dunes. Pre-registration is required.

Suggested ages 13 and older. **Please note: Children under the age of 13 are welcome to participate in the Full Moon hikes if they are capable of keeping up with the group when hiking through soft sand for a distance of approximately 2 miles (round-trip).
