New Doors for the Freight Shed

Remember those awkward storm doors? 
With the support of a grant from the Davis Family Foundation and the skills of Maine’s First Ship volunteers, new air-tight, insulated doors and transom windows have been installed at the freight shed. Not only is the building warmer, with the ungainly overhead doors gone, the space is really unified, as it once was. 
A major quality of the freight shed is its ability to connect Front Street with the Kennebec River. Drive down Lambard Street—the new doors make this view available at all times!
