Stories from the Historian

April 9, 2020

The Ski Museum of Maine is excited to announce a wonderful gift. On behalf of his Grandfather, Charles
“Buddy” Gallagher, Sean Morton and his father Bob Morton donated some very old, brand new
equipment. Buddy repaired bicycles when he was 13. That led to him owning a very successful sporting

skis to bicycles, and more. Read more
