Tall Ship Providence arrived in Alexandria Monday night just before midnight. 

Providence is a reproduction of the first authorized ship in the United States Continental Navy. In deck space, the ship is about 65-by-22 feet.

The ship is located at the northernmost pier of the Alexandria marina near Founders Park. The city has plans to build Providence a permanent floating dock at the foot of King Street next year.
