About Membership

Your membership, at any and all levels, provides the Museum with support to continue its mission to provide a center for education, preservation and study of traditional Essex shipbuilding and the community that supported it.

The Essex Shipbuilding Museum is located on the grounds of the A.D. Story Shipyard. In this small village of Essex, MA, in the basin of the Essex River, more than 4,000 wooden ships were built. The American fishing schooner was invented here. I created this video to help raise money to interpret, educate and preserve the proud New England history of Essex. I hoped to summarize the the story of the Essex shipwrights and mission of the museum.
