One of the most significant additions to the Atwood House Museum is this 2005 gallery highlighting the four kinds of commercial fishing most prominent in this area: line fishing, weir or trap fishing, shell fishing and lobstering. The exhibit consists of models of typical fishing boats, examples of tools and equipment used, paintings and photographs of fishermen and fishing techniques, children’s hands-on activities, as well as videos of oyster harvesting and weir fishing.

This 1900’s Amesbury Dory rowboat is new to the Chatham Historical Society Collection for 2014. Originally the Dory would have been used for line fishing and lobstering.  The Dory, owned by the late, Dave Morgan, was donated by his wife. Thanks to Don St. Pierre and Dave Archibald who both did restoration work on the dory.  #dory, #chathamhistoricalsociety, #fihsing, #boat, #atwoodhouse, #chatham, #capecod
