Where’s the Whaleboat?
The Whaleboat Middlesex is embarking on its final summer voyage! Be sure to visit this extraordinary piece of Darien's history at Hollow Tree Self Storage — a huge thank you to this business for donating space for the Middlesex to dry dock over the winter — and to all of our "Mates" who got in on the fun!
