ABOUT HISTORIC SHIPS IN BALTIMORE Located in the heart of Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Historic Ships in Baltimore is the steward of two historic U.S. Navy vessels: the US Sloop-of-War CONSTELLATION and the US submarine TORSK. CONSTELLATION is the last all-sail warship built by the U.S. Navy and has an historic provenance dating back to the 1797 frigate CONSTELLATION built in Baltimore. USS TORSK, a WWII era Tench class "fleet boat" submarine, sank the last two Japanese enemy combatants and holds the record for the most dives of any US submarine. Also under the care of Historic Ships are the US Coast Guard Cutter TANEY, the last ship still afloat to witness the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Lightship 116 Chesapeake, which marked the entrance to the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays, and the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse, built in 1856 to mark the entrance to the Patapsco River and Baltimore Harbor. As significant symbols of our nation's maritime heritage, the non-profit organization plays a key role in the heritage and cultural landscape within the City of Baltimore and strives to raise awareness throughout Maryland and the United States of these important elements of our nation's history.
