CASTINE — The Castine Historical Society’s will show its 2019 season exhibit June 10- Oct. 14 at 17 School Street. The exhibit will showcase 1800s Castine’s working waterfront. Castine merchants and shipowners ran an effective and largely self-contained international trade in fish, cotton, and salt from about 1820-1860. But not without the many risks faced by the men and women sailing wooden ships across the open ocean to carry merchandise to distant ports. Exhibit schedule and hours can be found at
