KELLEY'S LANDING WHARF:

The Wharf has been rebuilt many times before reaching it's present stage. It started out as little more than a one boat mooring then expanded to about 50 feet before reaching it's present length of 127 feet.

The railroad didn't lay tracks to the waterfront till 1900 and then they were almost a block away. When the Wharf was built to it's present length in 1920 the tracks were laid along side the Wharf, not on it. The area between the ties was filled with timber to allow trucks, hand carts and such to unload freight for the local businesses.

Piles were sunk into the Fall Creek mud and bedrock was found only 10 feet down so it has a solid footing. Wood beams and wood timber decking top the piles.

There is a native cut stone retaining wall running the entire length of the Wharf.

This end view of the Wharf shows how the railroad tracks run just beside, not on, the Wharf and the area between the rails is filled with timbers to the level of the Wharf and road.

Fender piles where driven shortly after a river schooner took out a small portion of the Wharf during docking. Ladders are also provided so people arriving from upstream in small boats can gain access to the stores especially on Friday and Saturday nights.

 

This will be the third kit released in the series.

Dimensions shown are approximate till the kit design is complete. Actual dimensions will be posted at that time.
