Update from the Fishing Heritage Center

For the safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff, the Fishing Heritage Center will be temporarily closed to the public as of 3/13/2020. Due to growing concerns over the coronavirus, we have decided this will be the best course of action for our organization. There have not been any reported cases of infection or exposure at the Fishing Heritage Center, but we are following the lead of other area organizations and responding with caution for the wellbeing of our community. We will remain closed through April. We will reassess opening at that point.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact info@fishingheritagecenter.org with any questions.

Thank you for understanding. Be well!
