Save the Stack Memorial: the Reedville stack is on a spit of land where the Morris-Fisher factory once stood, now part of Omega Protein’s campus. It has been restored as a memorial to the nineteen fish factories that operated during the late 19th and 20thcenturies here in Reedville. The Museum helped raise funds for this restoration project, and once the stack was completed, we created a small memorial out of left-over bricks. This memorial is a terrific place to sit and look over Cockrell’s Creek, basking in the beauty and serenity of the water.
As you enter the port of Reedville, Virginia by water, one of the first things you see is the 100 year old brick stack that is all that remains of a long gone menhaden processing plant. A committee was formed to raise funds for the renovation of this badly damaged structure. This video documents the dedication ceremony held on May 12, 2013, celebrating its rehabilitation
