Significance: By the end of the nineteenth century, the lumber industry on the West Coast was booming, and specialized vessels were needed to transport the lumber along the coast, of which C.A. THAYER was typical. With the advent of steamships, however, the need for the services of schooners like the C.A. THAYER to transport lumber began to decline. C.A. THAYER found work in other industries, like the fishing and salting industry, and was even used during World War II as an ammunition barge. By the early 1950s, C.A. THAYER was the last commercial sailing vessel on the Pacific Coast. In 1966, she was declared a National Historic Landmark.
