I'd like to thank Benson Gray for doing a serial number search for me and getting me the information on my canoe. As a show of appreciation, I did join the WCHA. I'm going to try to restore this canoe to original colors. I've never done a canoe restoration before, so I'm expecting to learn a lot. I'm going to have to do a lot of research and ask a lot of questions. Finding the right color paint might be an issue. There appear to be a few missing pieces. Congress Park is a neighborhood in Brookfield, IL. It found was in a barn in the driftless area SW Wisconsin. It has some issues for sure, but nothing that can't be fixed.
