1 Lowell's Boat Shop and Museum
Established in 1793 and cited as the birthplace of the legendary fishing dory, Lowell's Boat Shop is the oldest continually operating boat shop in the United States. As the sole survivor of the area's renowned dory manufacturing industry, Lowell's maintains its time-honored tradition as skilled craftsmen continue to build the dories and skiffs that were once the mainstay of the fishing industry in New England.
Located on the picturesque banks of the Merrimack River, this non-profit working museum and National Landmark is dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the art and craft of wooden boat building. Centuries of boat building tradition are brought to life at this remarkable site as the Boat Shop conveys its rich history through the boats it builds, its collections and the stories they tell, guided tours, workshops, boat building classes, youth programs, and lectures. Innovative educational programs, exhibits, and events are offered to the public throughout the year, and rowing is available seasonally.
