Supported by a Maine Humanities Council Major Grant

This exhibition for the 2019 season at Castine Historical Society will focus on new research surrounding the economic and social factors of transporting cargo around the world in Castine-built ships from 1820-1870. The exhibit will feature documentary evidence of the many risk factors involved in sea voyages at a time when maritime business activity in Castine was at its height.



MHC Major Grants support for a variety of larger humanities projects such as exhibits, conferences, films, and other initiatives.
