August 23, 2022 , 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

The schooner Lois McClure is the Museum’s full-scale replica of an 1862-class sailing canal boat, based on two shipwrecks located in Lake Champlain. Join us for a one-hour tour to learn more about how this replica project was started in 2001 with the goal to understand our region’s unique 1862-class sailing canal schooner; how it was built and operated; and the economic, cultural, and personal impact the canals had on our region and people.

Tour will meet on the docks in North Harbor and go through the above and below deck portions of the boat. Please note, the tour will use stairs to reach the below deck portion. Time will be provided at the end of the tour for questions.
