One of the 6 remaining old schooners built in Essex, MA is now 118 years old.
Len Burgess writes-
On February 1, 1894 118 years ago the Effie M. Morrissey, the ship that became Ernestina, slid down the ways at the James and Tarr Yard in Essex, Massachusetts.
The Ernestina has been designated by the Department of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark. She has sailed on through the century to become one of six remaining Essex-built schooners and is now in New Bedford, MA.
She reached within 600 miles of the North Pole and is the last ship to bring immigrants to this country under sail from the Cape Verde Islands. Ernestina was given to the people of the United States by the people of the Cape Verde Islands in 1982. Her history is a remarkable legacy that spans continents, races and generations.
A very large scale model of the “Morrissey” is in the Waterline Center at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum.
Here are some videos and photos I took of her back in May of 2009-
