Port Dover Harbour Museum
Visitors can enjoy exhibits that explore the marine history of Port Dover, along with the history of the community. Learn about the Burning of Dover during the War of 1812, explore the rich boat building tradition in the community, learn about the shipwrecks of Lake Erie and some of the acts of heroism that took place along the lakeshore. Highlights include Captain Alexander McNeilledge, Abigail Becker and the Four Brave Girls.
In 1852 the steamer Atlantic sank off of Long Point. This tragedy resulted in the largest loss of life on Lake Erie. For over a century, divers searched for the elusive shipwreck. In 1984, the wreck was discovered by Mike Fletcher, who recovered many items from the ship. Visit the exhibit to learn about the history of this tragic occurrence and to see come of the recovered objects.
