Schooner Nancy, 1927, courtesy Hull Life Saving Museum.

On February 20, 1927, the 5-masted schooner Nancy ran aground on Nantasket Beach in Hull, Massachusetts. Too massive to move, the schooner remained on the beach for several years, serving as a tourist attraction—and even as an advertising billboard.

On Thursday, Febuary 7 at 7:30 p.m., Hull Lifesaving Museum Curator Victoria Stevens will provide a look back at Hull’s most famous shipwreck, with original photographs, newspaper stories, and oral histories.
