Death’s Door Maritime Museum Launches Roof Repair Fundraiser

A combination of years of severe winter weather and the April 2018 record-breaking snowstorm took a toll on the roof of the Death’s Door Maritime Museum in Gills Rock. A new roof is required to protect and preserve the historical artifacts and to ensure the doors will open for the first summer season with the new name of Death’s Door Maritime Museum.

This time-sensitive project is imperative to ensure the historical maritime artifacts aren’t damaged. The total cost estimate is $67,000. Funds are needed to help the nonprofit museum complete the repairs quickly.

The Death’s Door Maritime Museum is currently closed for the season until further notice and will open as soon as the building is safe for visitors. To contribute, go to For more donation options call 920.743.5958.
