Attraction details
Owner description: First settled in 1783, the village of St Martins was a major maritime destination during the Golden Age of Sail. With over 500 vessels launched off of our shores, the vessels built here sailed all over the world and brought back ideas and architectural designs which the Captains, wealthy shipbuilders, and mariners applied to the construction of their own homes. The shipbuilding and lumbering industry in the area once supported a population of nearly 4000 people. The Quaco Museum attempts to do justice to the vibrant past of St Martins by preserving and promoting our history through exhibits, activities, and education. With guided tours and a hands-on approach to history, you certainly won't regret making a stop at the Quaco Museum

My husband and I stopped by after visiting the covered bridges. I was just wondering how the ship's were built along the shore and how they entered the water. The nice, informed woman at the museum answered my questions. Very nice small musuem. Worth the visit.
