Gas House Beach, which overlooks Gerry Island, is accessible via Gas House Lane. The harbor here is known as “Little Harbor” and is one of the oldest sections of the Marblehead waterfront. Gas House Beach actually got its name from the gas generating plant that burned coal to create gas for the town’s street and house lamps. When the tide is low, you can walk along the path of stones to access the island. However, be aware that there is a fair amount of poison ivy!
