July 10 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until December 20, 2019

The current exhibit at Freeport Historical Society — “The Mast Landing: Industry, Commerce, and Its People, 1720s-1920” — focuses on Mast Landing, the area where large pine logs destined to become ship masts were hauled and loaded into the Harraseeket River during the 18th century. Abner and David Dennison moved to town in 1757 and soon after built a sawmill and vessel at the landing. This industrial activity marked the beginning of growth toward a village that would thrive, prosper, and decline as new modes of transportation changed the face of commerce. David Coffin is co-curating the exhibit, which will include years of work on the historic Mast Landing village as well as new information about the people who lived and worked there. C0-curated by Holly Hurd and David Coffin. Exhibit runs from May 24 to December 20. Donations welcome.
