CIHS Exhibit 2018-19
Chebeague and Maritime Enterprise
This exhibit explored many of the different ways in which, over the centuries, Chebeaguers have earned their livelihood from the sea. We introduced just some of the enterprising islanders: boat builders, ships' captains, lighthouse builders, merchants, "stone sloopers," fishermen and mariners. Often, they pursued more than one occupation at a time or changed careers as the economy of the island and its natural resources changed.
