The Governor Stone is the last known working shallow draft gulf coast schooner. The mission of the Friends of the Governor Stone is to highlight and share the history of waterfront communities by sailing and exhibiting the 1877 Schooner Governor Stone along the Northern Gulf Coast. The Governor Stone’s homeport is St. Andrews Marina.
Friends of the Governor Stone Inc. is a non-profit 501c3 organization and we encourage your support of the Governor Stone by becoming a member of FOGS and through your generous donations to keep this living museum alive and sailing for future generations to enjoy.
