The museum was given a generous donation of “A Chart of the Harbor of Wood’s Hole Massachusetts Including Sailing Directions” dated 1857. This original chart is in excellent condition. The donor, Linda Kohn, is a member who used to reside in Woods Hole and now lives on the West Coast. She donated it in memory of her husband, Henry I. Kohn. “Thanks for bringing us to Woods Hole – Linda, Annabel and Lars” The museum would like thank her and our other members for their generosity and continued support.
