Update (Sept 14, 2007 /Gloucester Daily Times): $95,000 state grant helps Maritime Heritage Center expand
Cool 3d tour of the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center’s future.
From their website:
Dedicated to the preservation of Gloucester’s maritime industrial history, the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center occupies 39,069 square feet overlooking Gloucester Harbor. The Center features the oldest continuously operating marine railway in the country. Originally called the Burnham Brothers Railway, the first rail was built in 1849 by brothers Parker, Joseph and Elias Burnham, who recognized the need for a facility that could haul boats out of the water for repairs. A second rail was added in 1856.
Hope it happens. Can’t wait to visit!
