Tour the Lois McClure
October 5 , 10:30 am – 2:30 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 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.
Visitors can board in the schooner in North Harbor and go through the above and below deck portions of the boat with an interpreter. Please note, the tour will use stairs to reach the below deck portion.
