What is there now

Static display of what is left of the salvaged wreck itself.  This area also is an extension of the River walk, and the Veteran’s Town Park of Whitehall. Whitehall has a rather small village town park. It includes various displays particularly towards its veterans, and this particular salvaged ship. Unfortunately the presentation of the ship itself, and the presentation has seen its better days.

More information

  • Wikipedia article
  • The sign would indicate that this ship was sunk during the war of 1812. But that’s not the case. It proved itself and its gallantry along with its man, during the entire war. Seems to have lain in waste in Whitehall until the year of 1825, when it was  pronounced unworthy of repair and sold. What was left of the ship was ”raised” and salvaged in 1958.  Much of this information was provided by Wikipedia.
