On August 17, 1983 Ken Hooson founded Captain Spicer’s Gallery as a nautical gift shop devoted to the culture and history of the 1000 Islands, and Great Lakes. Ken was a WWII naval veteran who served in the Pacific Theatre on U.S.S. L.S.T. 49.
After the Navy Ken would eventually move to the 1000 Islands Region and start a Marina in Spicer Bay, Clayton NY. He had an obsession for ships, the 1000 Islands & Great Lakes Region.
Today Captain Spicer’s Gallery is still family owned and operated by Ken’s Son.
Our store is as rich with the history of the 1000 Islands, St. Lawrence River, and Great Lakes as it is with its wares. Our store has always made sure that quality of our items is the most important aspect, next to our customer satisfaction and assistance.
