A storm clears the Friendship and the nearby Pedrick House. This building and ship are a part of the Salem Maritime Historic site. This building is the original building that was built in 1770 in Salem and at some time moved to Marblehead. In 2003 a local historian noted that this building was owned by a Salem Merchant. The park service managed to get the building transferred to them and Salem.
Then a labor of love began as it was taken apart very methodically and brought to Salem. It was then piece by piece put back together and it sits much as it had in the 1700s.
Salem is home to derby wharf, and scenic Salem Massachusetts is in New England. Salem Massachusetts is the area where my family came from and I used to paddle a rowboat or better known as a dinghy or pram around the harbor. The Friendship is Salem's tall ship and sits at Derby wharf. The Pedrick House has a view of the ocean, which as you can see here creates a beautiful seascape. Salem is home to the first National Historic Park in the country.
