With Caleb Estabrooks of Hanover, NSRWA Board Member

For 200 years the North River bustled with the industry of building wooden ships, and we see the evidence of this on historical markers and local town seals. Recently discovered artifacts and stories are adding to the depth of what we know about this influential piece of local history. Come see a collection of images and artifacts from Barstow’s Two Oaks Shipyard, hear how the shipbuilding industry shaped the town of Hanover, and the influence these ships had on the early United States.
