Bath resident and professional photographer Benjamin Williamson will share a variety of images, mostly local scenes, and the stories behind them. A lifelong fascination with weather and nature combined with a keen interest in man-made landscapes and human stories have resulted in a catalog of images that capture Maine at its most beautiful, sometimes terribly so. His photos have graced the covers and pages of many issues of Down East Magazine, where he was the photo editor and staff photographer for the last 6 years.
Over 1,300 ships have wrecked off the coast of Maine, each with a story of danger, adventure, heroism, and tragedy. Explore our immersive “Shipwrecks and Salvage” exhibit to understand the technologies, risks, and preservation efforts involved in maritime archaeology, then dive into our historic shipyard to search for clues and solve the mystery of the wreck of an actual Maine Vessel. All ages welcome.
