1/15: A Tale of a Sea Captain’s Life at The Lincoln Home

Event has passed


Carolyn Hardman will give an illustrated talk about Joseph Hopkins, a Newcastle/Nobleboro merchant ship captain on Tuesday, January 15, from 3:00-4:00pm. The height of Maine’s wooden ship era took place in the mid 1800’s, when the US led the world in ocean trade and shipbuilding. Much of that shipbuilding and commerce was centered in Midcoast Maine. A collection of Captain Hopkins’ journals are on display at the Nobleboro Historical Society.
