Emmeline Atwood, who owned Gallery-on-the-Moors with her husband, went to Washington D.C. during the winter of 1917-1918 and took a course in training for the Red Cross. When she returned to East Gloucester in the spring, she opened the Gallery for sewing surgical dressings and the building became the home base for the Gloucester branch of the Red Cross.
