According to Norfolk County's page

The Port Dover Harbour Museum is partially housed in an original fisherman's net shanty. This section is dedicated to the story of Port Dover's fishing industry, which continues to be an important part of local life. The galleries in our modern addition present exhibits on the days of commercial sail as well as Lake Erie Shipwrecks, Ship Building, Prohibition-era Rum Running, The War of 1812 and other aspects of lakeside life in this unique community. The museum is also active in the preservation and presentation of local folklore and living traditions, particularly in the areas of fishing and lakeside history. This has been realized through such ventures as the Fishfest Maritime Music Concerts, Northshore Home Movie Festival, and our Marine Heritage Festival as well as through exhibits, lectures and special events. Since 2002, the museum has been the home to a major collection of artifacts from the 1852 wreck of the Steamer Atlantic.
