COLLECTIONS CORNER
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This chest accompanied Captain Henry Green on the ship Sabina around the “Horn” to San Francisco from Long Island in 1849 as many locals headed to the California “Gold Rush”.
———
The Sabina had a crew of whale-ship captains who had no commands, along with other local residents who decided to try prospecting for gold. Individuals from both the south and north forks of Long Island were included among the Sabina’s passengers and crew. After a disappointing year, Capt. Green returned home overland, crossing the continent by horse and carriage, 19 years before the completion of the transcontinental railroad.
———
His signature and the name of the ship Sabina, can be seen on a label affixed to the left side of the chest. Bequest of Myra Case, 2006.
———
On view at the Nautical Museum at Horton Point Lighthouse.
