Maine's First Ship

Busy morning with Maine's First Ship: Ken is working on the Virginia model; the Rigging Gang is toiling away; Fred & Jeremy are occupied on the ship; and docents Dan, Sully, & Lynn, were just opening the visitor center. Stop by 27 Commercial Street in Bath, Maine to explore the history of the 1607-1608 Popham Colony, the "pretty pinnace" they crafted, and the story of our modern reconstruction of that ship. Open until 3pm today.

MFS hosted RSU1 students for their final visit in the Hands On Our History series last week. This visit focused on the traditional skill of woodworking and included a chance for students to get aboard the pinnace Virginia. Originally scheduled for the fall of 2023, this program was made possible by a 2022-2023 grant from the Maine Community Foundation's Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Program. Many thanks to MCF for supporting the development of this educational project; we look forward to offering it to more school groups.
