Shipbuilding and Migration

January 10, 2017

The Belfast Free Library is hosting Cipperly Good, curator at the Penobscot Marine Museum on January 10 at 6:30 p.m. She will discuss the role of ships built in the midcoast on migration to this area. Searsport and Belfast built and captained ships that carried slaves from Africa to Cuba to work in the sugar industry. And, closer to home, they brought European and Italian workers to Stonington and islands off Rockland to cut and carve granite for use in major construction all over New England and New York.  

This program is free and open to all.

Funded project of the Maine Humanities Council.  The Maine Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
