Welcome to MHA

We are sailors who long to sail on a tall ship that visits ports of call on the Great Lakes; boat lovers and woodworkers who enjoy restoring and maintaining a fleet of classic wooden boats using old tools and techniques; history buffs who relish the maritime heritage of the Great Lakes; men and women who enjoy teaching young people boat-building skills and life skills not taught in any classroom.

We are dedicated to preserving, interpreting, and sharing the maritime heritage of the Great Lakes. We are the Maritime Heritage Alliance.
