Mystic (1, Completed)

There is one Amistad site in Mystic

Mystic Seaport Museum
75 Greenmanville Avenue, Route 27, Mystic, CT

mq24f.jpgMystic Seaport is an outdoor maritime Museum that tells the stories of America and the sea. Located on a 40 acre waterfront site in the town of Mystic, Connecticut, the museum exhibits historic tall ships and small boats, a New England coastal village and extensive collections of art, shipmodels and artifacts. The museum also offers hands-on activities for children and adults, crafts demonstrations, educational programs and a variety of special events. Mystic Seaport is also the site of current efforts to build a replica of the ship Amistad, a Spanish slave-ship commandeered by 53 Africans who were to be sold into slavery in Cuba.

So I guess that’s what makes this place worthy of the Amistad Trail. Truth be told, I don’t even remember that being there when we visited. But it is a great place to visit, Amistad replica or not.
