Near sistership to Carmelita

The history of the Princeton Hall is a treasure: she was built in Sitka by Native craftsmen at the Sheldon Jackson College, funded by the Presbyterian church, and operated as a gospel boat after her return from service in World War II. Master boat builder Andrew Hope went on to build 21 other boats in Southeast in his lifetime in addition to serving in the territorial and state legislatures.
