GHHSA was founded in 1986 to construct the Lady Washington as Grays Harbor’s contribution to the 1989 Washington State Centennial.
The ship was launched at Aberdeen Landing on March 7, 1989. Over the past quarter century, tens of thousands of Harbor residents have visited the ships, volunteered time, and donated money to the Historical Seaport’s education programs. The Seaport’s 25th anniversary will celebrate this heritage and look forward to establishing Seaport Landing, a new home port for Lady Washington and her companion ship Hawaiian Chieftain in South Aberdeen.
