The Heritage Center purchased the Gloucester Marine Railway on Harbor Loop for $500,000. The site has 5 buildings and a network of wharves. The City borrowed $250,000 towards the purchase, with the remainder coming from private donations.Questions surrounding the environmental clean-up costs and liability were unresolved.
