Antique Boat Museum - Clayton Sign


By Andy Adams

The Antique Boat Museum bills itself as North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum. It enjoys a spectacular location in the Thousand Islands on the St Lawrence River and the museum has a 4.5 acre campus with 1500 feet of shoreline for their enormous collection of boats. More than 100 boats are on display every day of the year and through the summer, you can go out for a speedboat ride on the St. Lawrence, row a wooden St. Lawrence, skiff, take boatbuilding classes or sailing lessons.

It’s a fabulous facility!

The store front was about 10 x 20 and the rest of that side of the building was a stock room, wood finishing room, then behind that was more back stock and the lunchroom.
