The Seamens bethel is a chapel at 15 Johnny Cake Hill, and was built byt he New Bedford port Society, and was completed in 1832.

if you have read Moby Dick, and remember mention of the Whalemans Chapel, that was actually based on this chapel the Seamens Bethel

Built by the New Bedford Port Society, it was completed on May 2, 1832. It is a contributing property to the New Bedford Historic District, a National Historic Landmark.

The Seamen's Bethel was specifically constructed for the many sailors who called New Bedford their home port (mostly whalers), who considered it a matter of tradition that one visited the chapel before setting sail.[1]

Some changes were made when the structure was repaired after a fire in 1866. The names of New Bedford whalers killed, and later all area fishermen, are noted on the walls of the bethel.

In 1996 the Seamen's Bethel, along with the New Bedford Whaling Museum (located across the street), the historic district and other icons of New Bedford whaling were collectively made into the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park.

Next up is a building in not so great shape the remnants of the White's factory in Acushnet, a former water powered cotton mill built in 1799

Nice collection of b&w's. The Seamens bethel is my favorite although I always like ruins like the White's factory. I love the details like the shadows on the church. The full moon is eerie. Reminds me of sun rise in the smoke filled skies of California when we lived there a few years ago. I don't miss wildfire season in California.

Thanks so much, the color of the moon at that stage was the effect of widlfires in the east that hat had floated smoke and haze right across the country

Mondays always seem to come by really quickly!

I've never read Moby Dick but am certainly familiar with the story. I had no idea that any part of it was based off anything real, so that's neat to learn.

I did read it years well decades ago, but I didn't know it was based on anything real, was quite fascinated when I found that out

Loved the photo with the ruins. It makes me wonder about the stories in that factory. And the shadow play in the last one.
Great post!
