Description:
New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park's Shoreside Industries app takes visitors to the whaling city on a journey through time.

New Bedford vessels explored the world's oceans in search of whales, and this seafaring community bustled with activity to support New Bedford's fleet of whaling ships and the thousands of men from across the globe who risked their lives hunting the largest creatures on earth.

Learn about the men and women who contributed to New Bedford's dominance of 19th century whaling through historic photographs, paintings and illustrations, and stories of triumph, tragedy, sacrifice, and perseverance.

A GPS enabled triggering system allows users to access information automatically or manually. Let this walking tour app be your guide to the city that Herman Melville described as "perhaps the greatest place to live in, in all New England."
