Vikings in America with Fran Drew

In September, 1960, immediately after Hurricane Donna, Fran Drew and two other family members discovered an unusual hulk of a boat at low tide on the Manasquan beach.  After tying the wreckage with a rope to the jetty, they hauled the soggy skeleton of an old ship ashore.  Others helped transport the ship to the family’s property, one block from the beach.  Over the next month hundreds of people came to see the hulk along with historical experts from Rutgers, the Smithsonian, and Oslo, Norway.  Please join us Monday, April 6 at 7 pm when Chatham resident Fran Drew will explain what was learned about her family’s great discovery.
