Historic Ships

True to its pioneering heritage as a savior of historic ships, NMHS has been a leader in bringing national attention to the preservation of the rapidly dwindling number of historic ships..

Today there are many preservation projects underway across the country, and yet many more await the funding and manpower to be undertaken. The Society believes in rallying around these preservation efforts and attempts to bring national attention to the plight of ships of every variety.
