  Gloucester, Massachusetts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gloucester is a city in Essex County, Massachusetts, in The United States.
Gloucester was founded at Cape Ann by an expedition called the "The Dorchester Company," of men from Dorchester, England, chartered by King James I in 1623.
Gloucester's most noted landmark is the harborside "Man at the Wheel" statue (also known as the "Fishermen's Memorial Cenotaph"), dedicated to "They that go down to the sea in ships," which is a quote from Psalm 107.
