Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 19, 1994):
Edna E. Lockwood is the last Chesapeake Bay bugeye to retain her sailing rig and working appearance, and is the only unaltered representative of the fleet which once harvested the Chesapeake oyster fishery. Her maritime architectural significance is vested in her multi-log hull, one of the largest in existence; this unusual log or "chunk" style of shipbuilding was practiced nowhere else in the world. Lockwood was built in 1889 by master boat builder John B. Harrison, probably at Chicken Point, for Daniel W. Haddaway of Tilghman Island. She dredged every oyster season from 1889 to 1967.
