The Day Has Finally Arrived- The Beaver Leaves Gloucester Railways for Her New Berth In Boston at the Tea Party Ship Museum Photos From Kathy Chapman
The day has arrived……The first of the three ships that will be a part of the new Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum will arrive in Boston Harbor on the Anniversary of the start of the American Revolution, Thursday, April 19 at 8:30am.
The Boston Tea Party event in 1773 is the single most important act that took place leading up to the American Revolution in 1775. The historic sailing vessel, the Beaver, will arrive on the 237th anniversary of the battle that began the American Revolution.
The completely restored and historically accurate hull of the Beaver will make it’s way down from Gloucester to Boston for the arrival at the new Museum. The Beaver will be towed to its berth at the Museum site in the Fort Point Channel. Once in place the masts will be stepped and the rigging will be completed.
