February 29 - Getting Ready for Edna E. Lockwood Restoration

On February 29, 2016, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum had the pole shed demolished in the boatyard. The building has to be removed to make room for the historic 2016-2018 restoration of the 1889 bugeye Edna E. Lockwood. Shipwrights and volunteers salvaged as much of the wood before the demolition. The building was built as a temporary structure more than 30 years ago, and suffered rot and termite damage in much of the timbers. Learn more about the historic restoration of the log-built 1889 bugeye Edna E. Lockwood, a National Historic Landmark as the last of her kind, and the queen of the Museum's fleet at bit.ly/ednalockwood.
