Nineteenth-century sailing ships displayed their names on decoratively carved and painted wood signs called quarterboards. When a ship's captain retired and went ashore he would acquire the quarterboard and place it on his house for all to admire.Back in the days of sunken ships and buried treasure it became fashionable to recover the wooden quarterboards from a wreck. The quarterboard hung from the quarter deck and proudly bore the name of the boat. Off the coast of New England there were as many as 300 wrecks a year. Residents salvaged items to sell or to decorate their homes.Today people name there Homes, Vacation homes, Apartments and Condos.The Quarterboard name plaques now days are hang inside the house ,condo and Apartment as well as outside over the door way or garage. They have names like Heaven, Happiness, and Paradise or Bay View or Green Gable or just the last name of the owner of the house.What is the name of your house? Go to to order
