Green Harbor in the Winter

Marshfield’s Green Harbor is a year-round working harbor. It provides some of the best access from the Mainland (i.e. non-Cape) to Cape Cod Bay and Stellwagen Bank. This makes it an ideal spot for fishermen to access these waters year round. I visited Green Harbor only briefly this summer, but wrote a more detailed post at the end of last season.

Below is a photo of Green Harbor in the winter season:

The nearby Fire Control tower at Brant Rock: This structure was used in the World Wars but remains standing today, like the other towers of its type up the coast. It was near this place that the first two-way trans-atlantic radio transmission took place in 1906:
