This immaculate beachfront vacation home has been completely remodeled but retains hints of its historical importance; it was the original U.S. base for the first Trans-Atlantic Cable in 1884. Originating in Ireland, the cable went from Nova Scotia to Cape Ann and back to France. Here is an excerpt from the May, 1884 "New York Times" description of the event and resulting Cable House.
"The cable will come ashore on Cape Hedge, on the south side of Cape Ann, about two and a half miles from the centre of the town. Near the beach a testing station is being built and is nearly complete. An operator will live there while the testing preliminary to the delivery of the cable to the company is going on, and this may last several plans for this station contemplate a modest, but attractive, little structure of one and a half stories, in which provision has been made for the operating-room, Superintendent's office, testing and battery rooms, and work-room."
