Massive Ship Sculpture in Bath

Maine Maritime Museum's Wyoming
Maine Maritime Museum

Bath’s Maine Maritime Museum will celebrate the dedication of its newest attraction.

I’m no stranger to the Maine Maritime Museum. Growing up in that neck of the woods, I used to go to summer camps there as a kid. As a teenager (a Morse High School Shipbuilder), I remember seeing the first pieces of the now completed sculpture put into place. You can’t really miss it, it’s huge!

In 2006 the museum anchored two, white large bow and stern pieces on its campus along the banks of the Kennebec River. Now five 120 foot tall masts have been put into place, completing the more than $1.2 million project which spans 450 feet.

The sculpture replicates the size 1909 schooner Wyoming. It was built at the Percy and Small Shipyard in Bath where the museum now sits. The ship was built to carry cargo to Europe in World War l. The ship was the largest wooden sailing vessel built in the United States. The ship was lost in a winter storm off Nantucket in 1924.

June 1st the Maine Maritime Museum will have a dedication ceremony at 9:30AM for the completion of what’s now New England’s largest outdoor sculpture. The museum will offer free admission to all.
