California Historical Landmark No. 1030

STAR OF INDIA

The "Star of India," a three-masted bark, is the oldest iron-hulled merchant ship afloat. Built on the Isle of Man, Great Britain, she was launched in 1863 and christened Euterpe. The Trans-Pacific trade from 1871-1898 resulted in the Euterpe circumnavigating the earth twenty-one times, stopping in San Francisco in 1873 and 1883. She was purchased by the Alaska Packers Association to service the salmon canneries in Alaska, leaving each season from Alameda during 1902-1923, Euterpe was renamed Star of India. The Star of India continues to sail the Pacific Ocean as an active reminder of early California's maritime commerce.

Location: Docked at 1306 North Harbor Drive, San Diego
