The Charles W. Morgan will be featured on the October 25 episode of “This Old House” on PBS. When the 1841 whaleship arrived in Boston this past summer on her 38th Voyage, the show’s host Richard Trethewey took some time to stop by the Morgan to interview the ship’s historian, Matthew Stackpole, and to film a segment on the historic vessel. “This Old House” is presently renovating an 1850 Greek Revival row house in Boston’s historic Charlestown, located just down the hill from the USS Constitution and the Bunker Hill Monument. The show’s crew felt that the Morgan and her recent restoration were a good compliment to their current project.
“This Old House” episode 4, “Wood and Water,” will air Saturday, October 25 on WEDH (CPTV) at 7 p.m. and on WGBH at 5 p.m. To find out when the show airs in your market, please visit their website and enter your zip code.
