Cape Cod, Massachusetts has a long history of being actively dedicated to preserving its exquisite environment, with few residents being as committed to the cause as author, playwright, illustrator, and set and costume designer Edward Gorey. Located in Yarmouth Port, his historic home, which previously belonged to a sea captain centuries ago, has served as a museum centered around Gorey’s life and works in the arts and in animal welfare since 2002.

The museum serves to honor the legacy of Gorey’s most beloved causes by educating the public on both local and national animal welfare issues, as inspired by the lens of his dynamic life and diverse talents.
