April 4 @ 6:00pm - 8:30pm
29 Tower Road, Newton, MA 02464
Boston's own War of 1812 icon, USS Constitution, underwent her first dry-docking of the 21st century between 2015 and 2017. Utilizing the second oldest naval dry dock in the country, Old Ironsides' most recent restoration included structural work, renewed hull planking, rigging, and 2,200 sheets of copper hull sheathing. Join us for an illustrated presentation and learn about the on-going preservation of America's Ship of State. A reception generously hosted by Trefler's will immediately follow.
