The S.S. United States Conservancy



the s.s.united states conservancy

The SS US Conservancy is the owners and stewards of America’s National Flagship, SS United States. The organization is committed to preserving the ship’s legacy by establishing a public-private partnership to refurbish and repurpose the ship as a self- sustaining, multi-purpose stationary waterfront attraction and by conducting effective education and advocacy programs on behalf of this irreplaceable American maritime icon. The ROZ Group in partnership with Eisterhold and Associates has provided strategic planning support to the conceptualization of a museum experience on board the ship. Additionally, Roz McPherson, a member of the Advisory Board for the Conservancy, has a personal connection to the project. In 1958, at the tender and impressionable age of five, Roz traveled on board the luxury liner to France where her family lived for four years. The daughter of a transportation corps officer in the Army, Roz has been around ships and transportation vessels throughout her life. These experiences fostered her love of travel and machinery.
