The Eleanor

The original Eleanor was one of several vessels owned by leading Boston merchant, smuggler, and Boston Board of Selectman, John Rowe. His holdings included stores, warehouses and Rowe’s Wharf, a current Boston landmark. Rowe was an active smuggler and inciter in the years preceding the American Revolution. He was influential in protesting British authority, specifically Britain’s tightening restrictions on colonial trade.

  • I saw it going by my house as I was rushing out the door for work, I stupidly didn’t run back in to get my camera. :(

  • I’m so excited to know that! My daughter is one of the actors that will be portraying one of the characters involved with the Tea Party at the new museum. Everyone should go for the grand opening June 25th. It’s going to be a huge event!
