Our partner MS Department of Humanities and our educational advisory committee hosted professor Chris Pinnen from Jackson MS. This highly anticipated culture-lecture discussed “Race and Slavery in Colonial Mississippi“
Our audience enjoyed discussing our cultural mission, wine and a lot of “CHEESE!”

The boats will be on display when our exhibits open later this year!!!
Buddy O’Brien, son of local favorite wooden shipbuilder Francis O’Brien, donated this 15 foot wooden boat original! This is the last wooden boat his father built. 1993 launching. Buddy is so passionate about our mission to preserve and promote Mississippi’s Shipbuilding heritage, he drove this boat all the way in from Texas!
