Items featuring the paintings of local artist Franklin Lewis Gifford

He was born in Woods Hole in 1854 and spent all but six of his eighty two years in Woods Hole. After retiring in 1930 from his house painting business, he was able to devote more time to his hobby of oil painting. Descended from one of the first settlers of Woods Hole, he used a familiar medium, paint, to depict historical scenes. Many Gifford paintings hang on the walls of the Woods Hole Public Library.
