Custom House Maritime Museum Sets New Exhibits
On June 7th 2007, a unknown shipwreck was discovered in Fishers Island Sound. In an effort to discover its true identity a dedicated group of divers and shipwreck enthusiasts undertook five years of research and invested hundreds of hours on the bottom trying to reveal her secret. The solution of the mystery and the uncovering of the true identity of the shipwreck ultimately became a community effort. Research doesn't end after merely identifying a shipwreck. In an effort to broaden this wreck's story, genealogical research was undertaken, the granddaughter of the Master and owner was located and contacted, and the important human element of the story was brought to light. This exhibit will acquaint you with the shipwreck of the Phyllis (AKA: Three's a Charm) through video of the shipwreck, recovered artifacts, side scan sonar images and photographs, and period newspaper articles.
