Mary E is returning to the Kennebec! Join us to celebrate the commissioning of Mary E as Maine Maritime Museum’s ambassador -- the oldest Maine-built wooden fishing vessel still sailing -- following a nearly year-long restoration. Built in Bath in 1906, Mary E represents the legacy of the region's shipbuilding heritage. Watch the commissioning ceremony, see traditional skills demonstrations, listen to the Bath City Band, step aboard Mary E, and see her sail once again on the mighty Kennebec River.

When: Saturday June 9, 2018 from 10 to 3 pm.

Where: Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, ME
