Salem Derby Wharf and the Custom House c. 1825



This scene shows the port in its heyday at the center of Salem’s harbor. The 199 ton “Antares” has arrived at Derby Wharf following a storm and dries her sails while unloading cargo as the tide recedes. At the head of the wharf is the famous Custom House, built in 1819 as the port’s commercial center and today preserved, under the custody of the National Parks Service, as standing evidence of Salem’s proud and colorful past.
