Friendship of Salem

    Newer Older

    Earlier this week I visited New England to spend some time with friends Larry White and Katie Marino as well as some old friends who used to live next door when I was growing up in Northern California. The trip began with a day touring some of the historical sites in Marblehead and Salem Massachusetts. This was my first visit to Massachusetts and wow, what a beautiful place!

    The Friendship of Salem is a 171-foot replica of a 1797 East Indiaman, built in the Scarano Brothers Shipyard in Albany, New York, in 2000. The ship usually functions as a stationary museum during most of the year, however the ship is a fully functioning United States Coast Guard certified vessel capable of passenger and crew voyages, and will set sail during various times of the year. The first American National Historic Site is run by the National Park Service and is the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, this is where the Friendship of Salem is docked.
