Friendship of Salem
Friendship of Salem is a full-size, fully operational replica of Friendship, a cargo ship built in Salem, Massachusetts in 1797 for merchants Jerathmiel Peirce and Aaron Waite. Friendship was an East Indiaman, built for international trade. The original Friendship made 15 voyages around the world, trading local products like dried cod fish and timber for pepper, spices, sugar, coffee, silk, tea, and other exotic goods. Today, Friendship of Salem sails to nearby ports, helping to bring the region's maritime heritage to life.
