The museum recently donated the half-scale model of 18
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.
