Welcome to the  Woods Hole Historical Museum Weekly Dispatch …… a new digital communication for sharing content from the museum’s archives, exhibits, and more. For the next two months we will reach out to you on a weekly basis hoping to bring back some memories, teach you something new about our unique community, and keep you posted on our plans for the 2020 season. Whether you are reading this from your home on the Cape or from locations far from WH, we hope you enjoy the Dispatch.   We encourage you to share your feedback with us at   [email protected] And although the museum is not open for visitors, you can reach us by email or phone. Hoping to hear from you as we go through this challenging time. 
The Sultana At Her New Home
The museum recently donated the half-scale model of 18 th  century schooner Sultana to the Bourne Historical Society. The Sultana was used for cargo and shipping along the coast and later by the British for patrolling the waters around Cape Cod during the Revolutionary War.
This half-model was begun by Fred Littleton of Chilmark, Martha’s Vineyard, and taken on by our boat shop crew, who worked on the project on for several years. We then realized we just didn’t have the space and capacity to finish it.

Bourne has the perfect location, as Skip Barlow of Bourne Historical will show you in this video. We are so pleased that the Bourne Historical Society is helping us realize our goal of preserving and displaying this window into American History.
