A statue dedication ceremony was held today to commemorate Northern Door’s fishing commerce and traditions. The unveiling of the statue occurred at Gills Rock on July 4 with a presentation from speakers about the relationship between the area’s fishing business and the recently renamed Death’s Door Maritime Museum. Mark Weborg, a member of the Board of Directors for the Death’s Door Maritime Museum, says this museum represents the generations of fishing his family was involved in around the area.
The event went from 2 p.m. to 5p.m. with free admission to the museum.
