Despite being surrounded by water on three sides, Rockport was “dry” for 150 years. It all began in 1856 when Hannah Jumper led a gang of 200 women through town, destroying anything containing alcohol (luckily, our night watchman Fred was not present, and he was spared).
The famous Rockport Shoes were inspired by a design developed by resident, Walter Dyer.
