This special cluster of three buildings in Hibbs Cove tells a tale of a fishing enterprise as old as the hills.
The Fisherman’s Museum is one of a cluster of three buildings in Hibbs Cove owned by the Fishermen’s Museum Board (FMB), which also includes the Hibbs Hole Cove School and the nearby Porter House. While each has a unique story to tell, collectively, the buildings along with other natural features and adjacent marine infrastructure in the area tell a unique story of fishing enterprise and families making a life for themselves on the edge of dramatic cliffs.
