Seamen’s Bethel

Built in 1832, the Seamen’s Bethel is the “Whalemen’s Chapel” of Melville’s “Moby-Dick”, and because of its association for more than 175 years with the old New Bedford whalemen and other sailors who “Go down to the Sea in Ships,” it has become well known in the ports of every ocean on the globe.
