As you enter, there are old and faded newspaper articles on the walls going back decades describ...ing its history. Among those are large catches and the pier's demise and rebuilding
While on the pier, I got to see several fishermen haul in their catches. Huge!
Take your time and enjoy as I did. If you're disappoint
FYI: The James T. Wilson / Buckroe Fishing Pier will be closing at 9pm on Wedesday night the 22nd ( Thanksgiving eve ) and CLOSED on Thanksgiving . The Pier will reopen on Friday ( 24th ) at 8 AM . Thank you and have a great Turkey Day !
