New England’s iconic Motif No. 1, sitting at the end of Bradley Wharf in Rockport 🦞
Built in the mid 1840s, it is an instantly recognizable fishing shack that is thought to be the most painted building in the world 🎨
Legend has it that Lester Hornby, a painter, upon being presented with yet another painting of this shack snapped, “What? Motif No. 1 again!” The nickname has stuck and we’ve been calling it that ever since.
