Elissa ~ Pier 21 ~ Galveston, Texas
The Galveston Historical Foundation operates this historical ship, Elissa, boasting her coastal flags at Pier 21! She was built in 1877 in Aberdeen, Scotland by Alexander Hall Company and proudly stretches 99 feet, 9 inches at the main mast! She officially launched October 27, 1877 and endured a 90-year commercial purpose carrying varieties of cargos to ports around the globe. As well as boarding to enjoy her Texas Seaport Museum, she remains fully functional and visitors can enjoy the high seas with scheduled sails, too!
