Did you know that Galveston, Texas is home to one of only three Tall Ships?
From https://www.tallshipsamerica.org/vessels/elissa/ In 1975, a rusted iron hulk lay in the waters of Piraeus, Greece. Nearly 100 years earlier, she had sailed the world’s oceans as a proud square-rigged sailing ship. Cut down, leaking and decrepit, she waited a cable’s length from the scrap yard. Today, Elissa remains one of the hallmarks of maritime preservation.
Today, the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA is one of only three ships of her kind in the world to still actively sail and welcomes over 40,000 visitors annually.
