Pioneer was originally built to carry sand from the mouth of the Delaware Bay to an iron foundry in Chester, Pennsylvania. In the days before paved roads, small coastal schooners such as Pioneer were the delivery trucks of the day, carrying various cargoes between coastal communities. Today, Pioneer plies the waters of New York Harbor helping to bring to life America’s maritime heritage.
