Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 4, 1992):
Built in 1877, STONE is the oldest surviving Gulf schooner, a type which was important to maritime commerce of the South and Gulf Coast, where shallows and sandbars made the employment of shoal centerboard schooners essential to the transfer of freight and goods to and from large oceangoing sailing vessels which could not come into port.

Condition:
She is repaired and restored as needed. The landmark is in good condition.

The ship requires constant maintenance, but is well maintained.
