Description

Salty the Seahorse kept a watchful eye on tourists headed for Cape Cod for decades, with an occassional wink of his eye to attract them into Henry Dunseith's gift shop. Located at the corner of Rt. 6 and North Street in Mattapoisett, MA, the structure stands approximately 38 feet tall and was built by Theodore Tetreault in the mid-1950s. Henry passed away in 1988 and left Salty and the gift shop to the Mattapoisett Land Trust. Salty almost met his terrible demise when the Land Trust had considered removing Salty, but many Salty fans came to his rescue. He has sinced been rewired, painted and mounted on a new pole. Barring any disasters, Salty should be able to keep an eye on use for the next 50 years.
