The U.S. Frigate Constitution became a dormitory for naval cadets in Kittery between 1882-1897.
Written on the verso of this photograph is, "Today at Charlestown, they claim it is too fragile to return, though when borrowed it was not too fragile to sail there."
Today the Constitution lies at harbor at the Charlestown Naval Shipyard in Boston, Massachusetts.
