The Squan Beach Life-Saving Station Preservation Committee in conjunction with NJHDA presents:
“Identifying the Bellholder Wreck” by Dan Lieb
124 Ocean Avenue, Manasquan, New Jersey
Reservations required – seating is limited.
Light refreshments available.
On Thursday Evening, August 22, 2019, at 7:30 PM, Dan Lieb will offer the presentation, “Identifying the Bellholder Wreck,” a shipwreck off Long Branch, New Jersey. No one knew the name of the vessel until an effort was brought forth by NJHDA and led by Lieb.
The wreck site offered little in the way of clues that might lead to an identification, so Lieb decided the only artifact on the seafloor that could help was the wreck, itself. His team put in more than a dozen man-hours on the bottom to collect the data needed to create an accurate site plan of the wreck that led to its identification.
The Squan Beach Lifesaving Station Preservation Committee is sponsoring the program, and NJHDA is associated with this group and displays some of its artifacts in the station. Admission price is $10.
Light refreshments will be served.
Doors open at 7:00 PM. Attendees are welcome to enjoy the shipwreck artifacts on exhibit.
Reservations are required. RSVP by calling 732-223-2231.
