Pirates & Privateers Presentation
Friday Mornings, 10:00 a.m.
June through September
Tour begins at Fort Phoenix flag pole,
Fort Street, Fairhaven, MA
New in 2016— Is there really pirate treasure buried on Sconticut Neck? Why might you become a privateer instead of joining the Navy? What’s the deal with the parrot on the shoulder?
Hear tales of pirates, Revolutionary War era privateers, and historical Fort Phoenix, presented by Greybeard, an 18th century gunner from the privateer sloop Broome, and Abigail Black, a ship’s doctor who grows herbal remedies in her village garden when she’s not at sea. Greybeard and Abby are sometimes accompanied by other members of the “Companie.”
Tours for school classes, scout troops, bus tours, clubs and civic groups, and private groups may be arranged in advance through the Fairhaven Office of Tourism. Call 508-979-4085 or email FairhavenTours@aol.com.
