Flagship Niagara League
The Flagship Niagara League is a 501(c) 3, nonprofit educational associate organization of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, chartered to facilitate citizen participation and operation of the U.S. Brig Niagara and her home port, the Erie Maritime Museum.
Programs and Services
The Erie Maritime Museum and the U.S. Brig Niagara educate the public regarding the region’s maritime heritage, the War of 1812 in Lake Erie, the building of Oliver Hazard Perry’s fleet, and the experience of the U.S. Brig Niagara under sail. When the Niagara is not in port, she sails the Great Lakes as a sailing school vessel, giving our youth the experience to develop leadership skills, self-confidence, and self-resiliency while learning a variety of dedicated curriculums. Throughout the summer months, Niagara is host to a variety of 2-3 week live aboard Sail Training programs. Students, ages 14 and up, can participate in a dedicated program curriculum while learning the art and science of traditional seamanship.
