Star of India, pictured, was built in Isle of Man originally as a full-rigged iron windjammer ship named Euterpe in 1863 for jute traders Wakefield Nash & Company of Liverpool. In 1901, Euterpe was sold to the Alaska Packers' Association of San Francisco, who re-rigged her as a barque and, in 1906, renamed her Star of India to be consistent with the rest of their fleet. She was laid up in 1923, made obsolete by steamships, and in 1926 was purchased by the Zoological Society of San Diego, California, to be the centerpiece of a planned museum and aquarium. It wasn't until 1957 that her restoration began, and in 1976, Star of India finally put to sea again. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)
