About Ashtabula Maritime & Surface Transportation Museum

The Ashtabula Maritime & Surface Transportation Museum is housed in the former residence of the light keeper and the Coast Guard chief in Ashtabula Harbor. The anchor from the Schooner C.L. Burton welcomes guests into an abundance of maritime history. Due to the railroads that played a huge role in the Ashtabula Harbor’s economy, the museum also features railroad history. A model of one of the most notable railroad stories, the Ashtabula Train Disaster, was added in 2018. In 2017, the largest piece of beach glass was found on the beach between Ashtabula Harbor and Conneaut Harbor. It weighs 275 lbs. and is on display!
