Tate House Museum Presents Two Centuries of Maine Shipbuilding

31 Aug 2022 11:37 AM | Anonymous member

-On Wednesday, September 14 at 7PM the Tate House Museum presents the third in its series of outdoor lectures on the lawn of the museum.

Nathan Lipfert, Curator Emeritus of the Maine Maritime Museum, will offer an illustrated

talk about the history of Maine shipyards, and the shipbuilders and vessels they built,

concentrating on the 200 years since statehood. During the wooden shipbuilding era,

Maine shipyards built more ships than any other state, and every coastal community

participated in this industry. Maine continues as an important shipbuilding region into

the present, providing well-paid skilled employment to thousands of people who build

vessels of wood, metal, and composite materials that have an impact around the world.

Lipfert’s presentation will be based on research from his recently published book, Two

Centuries of Maine Shipbuilding: A Visual History. (book will be available for sale)
