Historian Nathan Lipfert will offer a presentation highlighting shipbuilding activity in the centuries following statehood and covering the entire coast, examining both the vital role the industry has played both in Maine’s economic and social histories and its continuing relevance to national security. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
