Hook, Line, and Sinker: The History of Fishing, taught by Carol Masterson

Fishing has been important to Maine since human beings first arrived in our area. The Wabanaki fished the ocean, rivers, and lakes seasonally and fish of all kinds was a staple of their diet. Every subsequent group of people to arrive in Maine has, in some way, benefitted from the fishing industry and culture.

Learn about different eras of fishing in Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell through stories of people who fished for their livelihood or just for fun, and from fishing-related collection items. Children will get special access to our new Spring exhibition all about the history of fishing!
