Williams Wharf, an historic boatyard and steamship landing provides public access to Mathews' picturesque East River for engineless watercraft (canoes, kayaks, rowing shells). The site was also used to film a scene in the upcoming Harriet biopic film!
Recent restoration of the wharf area added waterfront green space, floating docks, fishing pier, support building with restrooms, an exhibition building for events or water-oriented classes and activities, a small floating stage and outdoor seating, and small-craft handling center.
Williams Wharf Landing is also proud to be home to the National Champion Mathews High School Crew Team. Be sure to stop and see the B. Williams General Store, home to the Mathews area steamboat museum.
