August Shipbuilding Odyssey
August 19 @ 10:00 am - August 20 @ 1:30 pm
In a program exclusive to the Brick Store Museum, visitors are invited to learn about the Kennebunks’ shipbuilding era. The “Shipbuilding Odyssey” begins at the Museum’s Program Center at 4 Dane Street with a brief illustrated look at what life was like in the Kennebunks’ many 19th-century shipyards.
Guests then embark on a special, narrated trolley excursion stopping at various historic locations associated with shipbuilding along the Kennebunk River in the 1800s, including the sites of the former Bourne & Kingsbury and Titcomb yards, the Landing, and the locks.
The morning concludes back at the Museum, where guests will enjoy clam chowder by Alisson’s Restaurant and refreshments and receive a commemorative souvenir of their historical trip.
Advance reservations are required as space is limited. To secure a spot for the tour, call the Museum at 207-985-4802 or purchase tickets online.
Tickets: $35/person and $30 for current Museum members.
