National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium

Lincoln’s Patent Prototype

Helping the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium create a unique element for its display, we used the drawings from Lincoln’s patent to hand-build a prototype model of this buoying system he developed for large vessels.
