Sea Eagle finds a home

October 11, 2012
Salem News

The Salem Historical Society Museum greatly appreciates the many items donated by the public that preserve the past for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations. Until the completion of the Dale Shaffer Library and with its industrial/transportation exhibit, one item could not be displayed due to lack of space. In 2007 a 1931 Sea Eagle boat manufactured by Mullins Company of Salem was generously donated by David Ford of Chagrin Falls. Since then, a 1971 Salem-made Sterling Mfg. boat trailer has been secured and completely restored to original condition by Richard Shanker, a former employee of Sterling. Ford will be present to accept the society's appreciation for his generous donation at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Shaffer Library at 239 S. Lundy Ave. The public is invited to attend this celebration of "welcoming" the 1931 Sea Eagle to the Shaffer Library industrial/transportation exhibit. For further information call 330-337-8514.
