CWB: A History
“In the beginning were the rental boats.”
When Dick and Colleen Wagner started renting boats in the 1960s they thought they would do it for just one summer. What they started became so much more to so many people. If you’re one of them, you’ll enjoy this history from Founding Director Dick Wagner. And if, like us, you are grateful for the “living museum” that is The Center for Wooden Boats, consider donating today!
