Coast Guard Heritage Museum
A NEW 42 FOOTER, UNIQUE TO CHATHAM, CRUISES THE HARBOR.
The Chatham Legends are a group of retired or former Coast Guard Personnel who have served at the USCG Station Chatham. Their goal is to keep alive and to honor the history of all the crews of the Chatham Station. From famous rescues like the Pendleton, and heroes like Bernie Webber, to the hundreds of Coast Guard men and women who serve at Chatham and perform dangerous and often heroic work on a daily basis. If you ask them they say that they are"Just doing their job".
Coast Guard Station Chatham has been the site of much Coast Guard History. No story of the heritage of the Coast Guard is complete without a look at the story of Chatham.
