Long Description:
The Eleanor D was the last commercial fishing boat on Lake Ontario. It was owned by the local Cahill family, who had fished the Lake for three generations.

Built in 1948, the Cahills fished her from 1958 until 1978. Her main catch consisted of Lake Trout, Whitefish, Perch, Bass, Chubs and Sturgeon. American Eels were also fished.

She sat berthed in Oswego harbor until 2004, when donated to the museum. A team of volunteers lifted her out. Restoration, stabilization and repairs began in 2005.
Is there a tour: No.

If boat is a garden what was planted in it: Not listed
