Nellie L. Byrd


Updated 9 September 2018:
Nellie L. Byrd has been on land for the past decade next to a small nonprofit organization, Chesapeake Bay Memories, on Middle River in Baltimore. The organization's efforts to restore her have waxed and waned, with ownership at one point changing to Lawrence Murphy, owner of Skipjack Thomas Clyde, who hoped to restore her to dredging, but as a power boat. Word is that those plans, in turn, have faltered, and Chesapeake Bay Memories volunteers have been back working on her and hope to restore her.
