Skansie House | Harbor WildWatch


On July 30, 2014, Harbor WildWatch partnered with the City and the Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the grand opening of their new location at the historic Skansie House located in the Park on Harborview Drive.  The site will also act as a satellite Visitor Information Center.  In honor of the town's rich maritime history, information on the Skansie Family adds to the overall experience of the visit.
