The "Widow's Walk" received that designation because the "Widow's" would constantly search the horizon over the ocean hoping for the return of the ships carrying their seaman husbands. There are literary reports of the widows pacing back and forth or round and round on the "Widow's Walk."

One can see widow's walks on the American seashore, particularly in the northeastern "New England" states.
