Harvest Queen was originally built in 1857 at Coxsackie N.Y., and was purchased from her owner, J. N. Briggs, of Coeymans, N.Y., 29 August 1917.
Late in 1917 Harvest Queen, an unpowered barge, was fitted out as a barracks ship at Newport, R.I., and was subsequently towed to New London, Conn., March 1919 to act as a barracks ship at the Naval District Base. She was still later towed to Norfolk, Va., and transferred to the 9th Naval District, where she served Base 2, Mine Force, as a barracks ship. Harvest Queen was transferred to the Coast Guard 28 March 1920.
