The Michigan Maritime Museum's Maritime Lecture Series will begin the year with presenter Jennifer Richmond-Anabeh, Collections Manager at the Heritage Museum & Cultural Center in St. Joseph, Michigan. Mrs. Anabeh will engage the audience with the story of the Truscott Boat Manufacturing Company. This family-owned company played an integral role in local, regional, national and international history, spanning both World Wars. The company produced everything from small rowboats, large yachts and military craft, to manufacturing every component in-house. Their patented designs and revered manufacturing processes hold a special place in wooden boatbuilding history and tradition the world over. 

 

The lecture will take place in the Museum's Lake Michigan's Call to Duty exhibit from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM on January 16th. Admission is $8, and $7 for seniors. There is no admission fee for Museum members. The Museum will be open beginning at noon the day of the lecture and 10 AM to 5 PM Fridays and Saturdays for the month of January.
