Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum

Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum Review

This exuberant Greek-revival mansion was the home of William Scarborough, a wealthy merchant in the early 19th century. The structure, with its portico capped by half-moon windows, is another of architect William Jay's notable contributions to the Historic District. These days, it houses the Ships of the Sea Museum, with displays of model ships and exhibits detailing maritime history. Already home to the largest garden in the Historic District, Ships of the Sea recently completed the ambitious addition of the North Garden, nearly doubling the walled courtyard's size and providing ample space for naturalist walking tours, relaxation, and outdoor concerts.
