Built in 1863, the iron-hulled, three-masted bark Star of India is the only surviving example of a type once common in the Alaska salmon fleet and on the trade-routes of the world. She is also the oldest iron-hulled merchantman afloat.

Two ships, the Balclutha and Star of India, are the last surviving vessels of the Alaska Packers Association's great salmon fleet of the 1893-1920 period.

Star of India is also California Historical Landmark 1030.
