      EVENT DETAILS
      Erie’s Maritime History

      Dr. David Frew illustrates the ways that a young Erie became a major part of
      American destiny as the growth of a new nation spread west from the Atlantic
      following native waterways. Return to a time when Lake Erie was the world's
      busiest shipping trade route and a local entrepreneur commanded the largest
      fleet of ships in the country. Shipwrecks, Lake Erie pirates, terrible storms,
      a naval base, the canal to Pittsburgh, commercial fishing, luxury passenger
      liners, and wonderful excursion ships were artifacts of those times, and Erie's
      West Sixth Street "Gilded Age" neighborhood (Millionaire's Row) remains
      as a sacred relic. Dr. Frew's hybrid professional background (engineering,psychology, and history) has informed his regionally best-selling maritime
      books and promises to make this timely talk more than exciting.
