Cannons of 1812

Gallery under construction.

Visitors to Independence Seaport Museum will notice some of our gallery spaces are under construction. We are preparing for our next exhibit opening 'Home of the Brave, The War of 1812' on March 15, 2012.

Replica cannon beside replica whaleboat.

For the next couple of weeks all other projects will be on hold and red oak dust will be flying as the Workshop on the Water builds two gun carriages for the replica 18-pounders that will be on display.

Carriage wheels

It's a change of pace for us. Around here we usually take large boards of wood and make them small. This time we're taking large pieces of wood and making them much larger.

Plans for gun carriage.
