Share a Memory
If you visited the Lois McClure and have a fond or powerful memory, we want you to participate in the Canal Boat Archiving Project!
Do you have a favorite story, photo, or video of the replica canal schooner Lois McClure? Did you visit the schooner while we were on tour or at the Museum? Were your ancestors involved in the canals or boat building? Use the submission portal below to submit a memory to our Memory Box and become a part of this project. Your stories will help us document and reflect on what we have learned from the replica sailing canal schooner Lois McClure and the history of the canals in our region.
