Freight Shed Updates
Lumber for Maine’s First Ship, the Virginia, has been delivered to the Freight Shed! It is the beginning of a four year project that will breath life into the structure and see significant repairs done to the building. Donations of timbers to repair the sills and materials for the roof have already been made.
There are many ways to help and engage in the process – This Saturday starting at 9:00AM (June 18th) we will be cleaning up the site and making way for this summer's construction and youth boat building program – please join us.
During Bath Heritage Days they will set the keel of Maine’s First Ship. The Freight Shed can play a significant role in our downtown. Community support takes many forms – for the Hahn’s End Cheese folks at the Bath Farmer’s Market, it is in a new cheese they named the Virginia- Sagadahoc!! It is delicious!
