Smooth Sailing: A boating revival at the Tinicum Waterfront

The Philadelphia Inquirer ran an article on June 6, 1991 on the waterfront recreation of Tinicum Township. The author discussed the roles improved water quality and road access were playing in the increased activity at the waterfront. Chris Templin saved the clipping in which Fox Grove Marina, founded by her grandfather and currently run by her brother-in-law Frank Marr, was featured.
