Long Description:
**The Schooner "Mautenee" was shipwrecked in Lake Erie near Ripley, NY during a gale storm on October 20, 1905. In 1906, George Fox transported the one ton anchor using horses and a log cart to his Findley Lake home on north road. He hung the anchor from the Schooner's life boat davit in his front yard. The Dunlap family later purchased the home and anchor. The anchor and davit were moved to this site in 1993**.

The anchor is located along the shore of Finley Lake a rather scenic location right in the heart of town. You should take some time to visit some of the unique shops in town while you are in the area.

** This information is from the history plaque at the base of the anchor's display.
