Biking Boston's Gold Coast Tour

We Begin with a history of Lynch Park before we head next door to Rice Beach. Then we venture to see Hospital Point Lighthouse. Pedaling north our next stop will be Mingo Beach. Onward to Tuck's Point to see the mouth of Manchester Harbor from the gazebo on the water. Then we will get a snack in Manchester-by-the-Sea before heading to Rafe's Chasm in Magnolia. We will lock up the bikes and hike out to this glorious cliff above the ocean. A quick trip to Hammond Castle and we loop back by the sea and feel the sand in between our toes on Manchester Beach. Downhill we pedal and take a sidestep onto Ocean Ave past the salt marsh and beach. We head toward Tuck's Point, but take a right on the bridge instead to see some fine mansions. Then past West Beach before we head back to Lynch Park.

History and Location of Lynch Park

Lynch Park is the meeting place for our tours. It has an interesting history. It was once the summer White House for two years during William Howard Taft's presidency. A stay which didn't end well with the woman who had owned it. She had to be restrained from burning the residence down after she evicted him. The house was named Stetson Hall, named after the man who built it and invented the cowboy hat. The house was saved by Louise Dupont Crowninshield and her husband Keno Crowninshield and moved across the harbor on two barges to Peach's Point in Marblehead. The mansion used to reside where the rose garden is now. Click here for a complete history. The house also appears in The Sinclair Narratives' tale in Arkham: Tales from the Flipside.
