HISTORY: The Muliphen was sunk approximately 14 miles east of Fort Pierce and is presently used for recreational diving and a fish reef. Just prior to the sinking and during the salvaging period. Several items were gather and donated to the History Center for display and storage. Ms. Bennett is actively seeking additional historical artifacts related to the Muliphen for display or storage. The Center has on display a "Higgins Boat" (circa 1969) although this boat was not an actual Muliphen boat, the center has repainted and updated the boat with the Muliphen identification. Ms. Bennett has assured me that if they receive any artifacts in reference to the Muliphen, they will properly displayed or store for posterity.
Some of you might remember the "1-MC" and our pre-AC "fan", "Wardroom Ashtray", Ship's Commemorative Wheel", "Shore Patrol Night Stick" and a "Baseball Uniform". (These items have been carefully restored and are on display)
