Bill Dyer And Rebuilding the Burnham Brothers Marine Railway in Gloucester, MA

William W. Dyer, a second generation descendant of Capt. John A. Dahlmer, made possible the rebuilding of America’s longest active Marine Railways in 2002

My first cousin, Bill Dyer was treasurer of the Gloucester Marine Heritage Center in its’ formative years. Early on, Bill recognized that the marine railways should be one of the key attractions of the center.
Through a financial gift, Bill and Mary Kay Dyer made possible the rebuilding of the historic Burnham Brothers Marine Railway at the
center.

On June 23, 2002 the Burnham Brothers Marine Railways was rededicated to “all the members of the Dahlmer and Dyer families who earned their livings from the sea and for all who love the sea and support Gloucester’s maritime heritage. Along with Sen. Ted Tarr and Atty: David Harison, I was honored to speak at the dedication to relate the Dahlmer families’ resettlement in Gloucester from their earlier homes in Michigan.

The descendants of the two Dahlmer captains will hold their first reunion on Cape Ann on July 7, 2012. One of the high points of my visit will be to visit the Heritage Center which has added many more exciting exhibets over the past ten years since the dedication
