Preservation of F.C. Lewis Jr. was completed in December 2002. See photos.
F.C. Lewis Jr. arrived at the Center in West Denton in 1997. Crane and crew from nearby Black Dog Boat Works were employed to lift Lewis from the Choptank and transport her to the landside exhibit location at the (then future) Joppa Wharf. See more photos of Lewisís arrival at the Center.
