Connecticut River Museum

Come aboard a historic schooner for a lovely trip back in time! "The Mary E" will be docked at The Connecticut River Museum in Essex through October, offering visitors 3 rides per day, except Wednesdays. The schooner is literally the last of her kind. Built in 1906, she was a mail carrier, a rum runner and a tour boat! She even sunk off the coast of Massachusetts during the 1960's and her story of survival is truly inspiring!
