Stage Head was named for a fishing "stage" dating back to the original settlement. It was the most likely original site of Conant's Great House (Cape Ann). The areas was fortified, manned intermittently from 1635 until the Spanish–American War. The works were also known variously as "Gloucester Fort", "Eastern Point Battery", "Fort Conant" and other variants of these names.
