San Francisco Maritime NHP participated in the heritage days celebration in partnership with China Camp State Park, Master Mariners Benevolent Society and the Traditional Small Craft Association. This special event highlights California's rich maritime history with a day of activities and tours. Participants could see and board the Grace Quan, a full-size sailing replica of the Chinese junks that graced San Francisco Bay more than 100 years ago. The junk is named after the mother of the state park's only resident, Frank Quan, who lives in an area once home to more than 500 people during the 1880s. The Grace Quan was built by San Francisco Maritime NHP park staff and volunteers as living example of the vessels that once fished from the shores of the State park
