The Original Friendship
Construction on the original Friendship was begun in 1796 by shipbuilder, Enos Briggs, known for the Frigate Essex, at his shipyard across from today’s Salem Maritime National Historic Site. The original three-masted, square-rigged, 342-ton vessel, Friendship, was registered in 1797 to merchants Jerathmiel Peirce and Aaron Waite.
She traveled the world trading for exotic spices, sugar and coffee, making 16 voyages to China, Java, Sumatra, Madras, London. Hamburg, Archangel, St.Petersburg, and other European ports. She was captured by the British in the War of 1812. The Peabody Essex Museum houses the ship logs for several of her voyages, as well as Aaron Waite’s shipping papers detailing information about the ship’s accounts.
Friendship Today
Visitors can tour Friendship and watch the volunteers and staff working on her at the historic wharves at Salem Maritime National Historic Site. In addition to being open for tours as part of the programs of the Site, Friendship sails as an ambassador ship for the Essex National Heritage Area.
Friendship is maintained in Salem by National Park Service staff and volunteers. Through an exclusive arrangement between the National Park Service and the Salem Partnership, you can enjoy the use of one of Salem’s most unique and imaginative venues Friendship of Salem, for your corporate or social special event.
