The Door County Maritime Museum will recognize a Northern Door tradition Wednesday when it dedicates a statue honoring the area’s commercial fishing industry at its Gills Rock campus. The commercial fishing industry has longed partnered with the newly renamed Death’s Door Maritime Museum since it opened in 1975 by donating artifacts and helping curate exhibits. Executive Director Amy Paul says the statue created by Mary Ott Davidson is a fitting tribute.
The museum’s renaming and statue unveiling ceremonies start at 2 p.m. with speakers set to present beginning at 3 p.m.
