The Browns Ferry Vessel, built in the early 1700s and sunk approximately 1730, is on permanent display. This is the oldest vessel on exhibit in America, and predates by 50 years all vessels previously found. The vessel is approximately 50' long and was a general purpose freighter used on the rivers and coastal waterways during the 1700s.” (Submitted on May 8, 2008, by J. J. Prats of Powell, Ohio.)
