The Washington Ship Model Society was founded in 1929 and is the oldest continuously active ship model club in the United States. Serving the greater Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia metropolitan area, the club is composed of artists and craftsman, model shipwrights, and nautical enthusiasts promoting the art of model ship building. Its purpose is to provide a socially enjoyable means for ship modelers to meet, share, and expand upon their common knowledge. Monthly meetings and events are posted.
