Famous Boat Plates on Wooden Canoes at Paul Smith’s College

We are at the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) meet at Paul Smith’s College in the Northern Adirondacks. Out on the large field (the Green), there are hundreds of famous wooden canoes. On most of the canoes there are brass name plates or decals of the famous makers. You can see two different versions of the Peterborough Canoe Co of Peterborough, Canada. The top four boat tags are on the most expensive and rare canoes. The Rushton would be the rarest, the Willits was super nice and the Morris canoe was very beautiful.

Walter Walker was one of the most famous canoe makers in all of Canada. There are two different Linkanoe tags represented here and that canoe was rare and unusual in its restored and usable condition.
