Museum Memories

Recently the City of Cordova Port and Harbor hosted a booth at the 2016 Fish Expo in Seattle. Not only is it a great opportunity to share information about Cordova’s 150 travel lift and our growing shipyard but it’s an excellent opportunity to meet former Cordovans. On Nov. 17, city staff met Dan Ayers, whose father served on the Coast Guard Cutter the Haida in 1936 and 1937. While, he was very young during his time in Cordova, Dan did recall how there were often festive dances held on the Haida. A gala event for many Cordovans. This photo came from the archives and collections of the Cordova Historical Society.
