Photo Gallery > Shipwrecks off the NJ Coast

Dan Lieb, President of the New Jersey Historical Divers Association, presented Shipwrecks off the New Jersey Coast. Formed in 1995 as a charitable non-profit, the NJHDA has joined with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to map the seabed artifacts of the Robert J. Walker, a hydro graphic survey vessel that sank off Atlantic City in 1860, just as the Civil War was beginning. Lieb discussed the Walker survey, conducted by teams of volunteer divers and overseen by NOAA marine archaeologists. He also presented the history of his organization, which was created to preserve New Jersey’s shipwreck and maritime history, research and record the many unknown, lost and misnamed shipwrecks along the state’s coast and to document their findings and present them to the public through exhibits and lectures such as the Shipman Mansion event.
