The Essex Shipbuilding Museum is located on the grounds of the A.D. Story Shipyard. In this small village of Essex, MA, in the basin of the Essex River, more than 4,000 wooden ships were built. The American fishing schooner was invented here. I created this video to help raise money to interpret, educate and preserve the proud New England history of Essex. I hoped to summarize the the story of the Essex shipwrights and mission of the museum.
