The Flagship Niagara is one of the most historically authentic tall ships in the United States. As an accurate reproduction of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's victorious flagship from the War of 1812's Battle of Lake Erie, the ship represents both Pennsylvania and her homeport of Erie in ports throughout the Great Lakes.  The Ship currently offers three distinctive educational programs to the public, including educational day sails, an individual trainee program, and for-credit high school and college programs. She will be berthed at the Canalside docks.
