NOTICE: Website No Longer Active
Since the formation of the alliance betweenMare Island Historic Park Foundation (MIHPF), Heritage US, and the South Carolina Olympia Committee (SCOC) supporting the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s efforts to raise needed funds for the protection and relocation of the OLYMPIA, we are deactivating this website. The alliance remains dedicated to our two primary objectives which are: the preservation and display of the OLYMPIA out of water where she will not be subject to ongoing corrosion; and in a location capable of generating sufficient operating revenues to address OLYMPIA’s long term maintenance that meets established standards.
