The Paper House


Rockport’s a haven for artists of all persuasions and levels of talent, as a casual stroll along the harborfront will attest. The Paper House, which was built out of newspaper in 1922 by Elis Stenman, is a perfect example of this creativity. Stenman, a mechanical engineer—who, incidentally, had a hand in making paper clips—also constructed the furniture for his summer house out of paper, including a piano and a grandfather clock.
