Project Overview

A sturdy display case was built to house historic artifacts from the Hesper shipwreck. An interpretive sign was designed, constructed and hung on the wall above the display case telling the history of the ship and stories of the artifacts. Space for the display has been provided in the lobby of the Silver Bay Marina. Through this project, artifacts in private collections have been brought back into public view.
