THE CAPTAIN HODGE PIER MONUMENT

The Famed Captain Hodge

 

The most central pier in Philipsburg is dedicated to Captain Arsene Hubert Hodge, better known as “Captain Hodge” in 1972. He connected the Windward Islands (Saba, Statia and St Maarten / St Martin) by sailing the “Trixie”.

 

After sailing this 16 ton ship, he became captain of the schooner “Blue Peter”. He was famous for having passenger safety prevail over his own. After he retired, he ran a guest house in Front Street.

 

A memorial placque on the pier along St Maarten’s famed boardwalk remembers the captain, as does the “Captain Hodge Pier” name eternalize his fame.
