Stories of the Sea: Sullivan Ships and Shipmasters

Join us to view a selection of vignettes of Sullivan and Sorrento's maritime past: Captain John Simpson and the Rachel’s fateful wreck, prominent Boston shipbroker John S. Emery’s origins in Sullivan, a little tugboat named the Phillips Eaton that guided vessels through the falls, and many more.
