YONKERS - Some people in Yonkers got a chance to relive history on the Hudson Thursday.

The "Lois McClure" was docked on the city's waterfront and provided a look at what life was like living on a schooner more than 150 years ago.

The ship was built 10 years ago, but modeled after ships that sailed in the area in the 19th century.

The 88-foot schooner is part of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum's collection. It gives an idea of how these ships were used on the waterways and how people lived back in the 1820s.

The schooner will be docked at Pier 25 in Manhattan Saturday through Monday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
