Build Record Request

Hi Gary,

Old Town 12764 is a 16 foot CS (common sense) grade Charles River model canoe, finished between November 1909 and May 1910. It has red Western cedar planking, closed spruce gunwales, and ash decks, thwarts, and seat frames. Fitted with a keel and original color white, it was shipped to Peoria, Illinois, on June 4, 1910.

The scan of this record is attached below-- click on it to get a larger image. This scan and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at if you want more details. I hope that you and anyone else reading this will join or renew membership in the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and to renew.

It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
