Last modified on In the late 19th and 20th centuries, over 2, whaling voyages set out from New Bedford, Massachusetts, bound for the bowhead whaling grounds off Alaska's arctic coast.
The voyage of over 20, miles took the whalers to the Azore islands off the coast of Africa, around Cape Horn and the southernmost tip of South America, to the Hawaiian islands and finally, to the Bering Sea and Arctic Ocean.
Many Alaska Natives, particularly Inupiat Eskimo people, participated in commercial whaling. In addition to crewing on the ships they hunted for food for the whalers, provided warm fur clothing, and sheltered many crews that were shipwrecked on the Alaska coast. The Heritage Center was dedicated in February and houses exhibits, artifact collections, library, gift shop, and a traditional room where people can demonstrate and teach traditional crafts.
The Heritage Center is one of several partners, associated through New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park legislation, who participate in telling the story of commercial whaling in the United States.
Park partners operate independently but collaborate in a variety of educational and interpretive programs. Sponsor Relationship. Most Recent Grants from This Sponsor.
