O'Dell Age of Sail in Annapolis County

Goes To Sea

A perennial favourite, our exhibit The Age of Sail in Annapolis County features shipbuilding artifacts from our own Wagstaff and Hatfield collections. The ship’s painting was found in 1967 in the attic of the O’Dell House Museum, and the half models in the collection were used by shipbuilders as scale references during vessel construction.

It is open at the O’Dell House Museum now until the end of the year.
