The Meaning of Squashhouse
A question a lot of people ask us is, “Where did the name Squashhouse come from?” A quick look back at history will help explain why we are a video production company called Squashhouse that is based in Marblehead, Massachusetts.
The original Squashhouse was a fish house built in the early 1700s on Gerry Island off the coast of Marblehead. It was later moved to 59 Elm Street. Beginning in the 1890s, it was converted into a playhouse that became home to the “Squash Players.” In the 20th century, it was also used as a gallery and art studio – where Jeff Hoffman studied under the artist Ned Fish.
The town of Marblehead has several historical claims to fame. It is considered the birthplace of the American Navy. Marblehead men are also credited with ferrying George Washington across the Delaware River.
