Description

Join us at the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA for tea and cookies with a touch of history and excitement. Watch the ELISSA crew maneuver the ship at the dock, setting sails and climbing in the rigging. Ongoing demonstrations will be introduced by the Captain’s wife, who will also give commentary and answer questions. Come see what life was like for a sailor on the high seas!

ABOUT THE 1877 TALL SHIP ELISSA

Galveston Historical Foundation brought ELISSA, an 1877 square-rigged iron barque, from a scrap yard in Piraeus Harbor, Greece to Galveston to begin restoration work in 1978. By 1982, GHF staff and volunteers completed restoration and transformed this rare, historic vessel into a floating museum that would actively sail. Today, ELISSA is one of only three ships of her kind in the world to still actively sail and welcomes over 40,000 visitors annually. She also serves as the Official Tall Ship of Texas, a National Historic Landmark and a symbol of the Gulf Coast’s historic beginnings as a seaport and active waterfront.
