Discover the treasures held hidden for decades by the 65' purse seiner SHENANDOAH and revealed only in the process of restoration. Objects of light, fascination and wonder, these treasures are full of surprises.
They tell stories of crewmen and women, of lives on land and sea. Made possible only in this moment of the restoration process, this exhibit will surprise and delight.
The SHENANDOAH was donated to the Harbor History Museum by the Janovich family in 2000 and pulled out of the water for documentation and conservation in 2003. She will be the centerpiece of our new Maritime Gallery, opening in 2025. Don’t miss this exhibit showcasing some of her before-now-hidden treasures.
