Hyannis Kennedy Legacy Trail

8. The Kennedys’ Contribution to Maritime Heritage

The Cape Cod Maritime Museum, to the east, and it’s 1886 Crosby catboat replica, Sarah, docked here at Gateway Marina, was made possible by funding obtained by Senator Edward Kennedy. Here the Kennedy legacy continues, sharing with the community their love for the sea and the need to preserve and celebrate the Cape’s rich maritime heritage. Included in the museum’s exhibits is a limited edition print, of his beloved sailboat, Mya, donated by the Senator himself.
