The Maryland Dove is berthed at Pier 1 in the Inner Harbor, opposite the USS Constellation. The Dove is a re-creation/replica of a late 17th-century English trading ship which made the first expedition from England to the Province of Maryland. Built over a fifteen-month period by Maryland resident James B. Richardson, it was launched in 1978 and was commissioned the Maryland Dove by Governor Harry R. Hughes for the 350th Anniversary of the settling of the Province of Maryland.
