Fishermen's Museum was started in 1969. The nearby Porter House
is furnished as a typical fisherman's home of the early 1900s.
Artifacts include fishing equipment, tools, kitchen utensils,
and models of various types of boats used in the inshore fishery.
An adjacent one-room schoolhouse has also been restored.
