The Alexander Henry is closed for the 2020 season.
We thank all of our visitors and volunteers for their support during this difficult year.
The LTMS during the pandemic managed to secure two major acquisitions. The first in the spring from the Canadian Coast Guard a decommissioned steel Bell- buoy and buoy block from the Parry Sound District Office and delivered by the Canadian Coast Guard ship the Samuel Risley. The second a donation of a Russel Brothers tug by Sandy Smith of Garden Lake Timber called the Dryden Three. Brought in by Tower Light Limited and the G. Lorenston crew the tug was part of the paper industry in Dryden until 1981. Both artifacts will be static displays and are already part of the Henry tours and experience.
Other smaller artifact donations were made over the summer and we sincerely thank our generous donors. Until the winter the LTMS will be focusing on maintenance of the Henry and expansion of the property in anticipation of a full season next year.
To keep up to date with the LTMS go to our Facebook Page at Lakehead Transportation Museum Society.
We look forward to seeing all our new visitors in 2021.
Take care and be safe.
