Alexandria is a city anchored in rich history, with stories going back many generations. Though too many stories have been lost to the tides, the history of the Tall Ship Providence has been preserved. This is thanks to the Tall Ship Providence Foundation (TSPF), a 501(c)(3) educational organization on a mission to educate Alexandrians on the role the Continental Navy played in the American Revolution.
TSPF spent 30 months restoring the floating time machine, returning the Tall Ship Providence to her authentic and former glory. But before you request permission to board and have the opportunity to meet Captain John Paul Jones, we invite you to step back through time and explore the history of the ship.
