Celebrating 50 Years

In 2021, the Herreshoff Marine Museum celebrated its Golden Jubilee — the 50th anniversary of its founding. Throughout 2021, the Museum celebrated five decades of preservation and interpretation of the world-renowned Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and its remarkable founders, brothers John and Nathanael (“Captain Nat”) Herreshoff. The Museum commemorated this yearlong anniversary with programming and special events engaging Herreshoff boat owners around the world, America’s Cup veterans and enthusiasts, and the maritime heritage community at large.
