Rhode Island's official tall ship is moving to Virginia.
A foundation in Alexandria, Virginia, has purchased the 110-foot sloop-of-war Providence.
The Tall Ship Providence Foundation says the ship will arrive in its new homeport in the summer of 2019.
The foundation bought it for $175,000 and is renovating it to host maritime educational programs.
The sloop Providence was built for the 1976 bicentennial and is a replica of John Paul Jones' first command ship.
