Fall at Maine’s First Ship

Due to increasing COVID-19 rates in Maine, we will be closing the Jane Stevens Visitor Center for the winter.  We can arrange for private tours by appointment, but we need to ensure the safety of our volunteers working on Virginia. 

As you cannot visit us in person, we now have a virtual tour of Bath, the Bath Freight Shed, and Virginia in the boatshed. 

The inside 3D tour is available at mfship.org/virtual-tour-2020.  Inside the freight shed you can see the Visitor Center display, see the rigging including several of the sails “bent” on the spars.  You can also see the work benches for the riggers.

Outside there are bird’s eye views of Bath and the Kennebec River in its fall colors. See this at mfship.org/bath-from-above .

Women’s Shipbuilding Day scheduled for November 15, 2020 has been canceled.

The Bath Farmers Market will continue in Waterfront park thru November.  Many of the vendors will be inside the freight shed December to April with capacity limits.  A few will brave the outside.
