Permanent Exhibit

The historic Percy & Small Shipyard site at Maine Maritime Museum is the only intact shipyard in the United States where large wooden sailing ships were built. The shipyard is complete with its original buildings, except for one - the blacksmith shop, which was torn down in 1939. That building had replaced a previous building that was destroyed by fire in 1913. The pre-fire building would have contained the blacksmith shop that was responsible for producing the metalwork that went into building Wyoming and many of her sister ships. And produce it did. When Wyoming was launched on December 15, 1909 at the P&S Shipyard, she had 300 tons of iron and steel in her fittings, fastenings and strapping.
