Lowell's Boat Shop

Lowell's Boat Shop is a National Historic Landmark and working museum, dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the art and craft of wooden boat building. Established in 1793, Lowell's Boat Shop is the oldest continuously operating wooden boat building shop in the United States and is cited as the birthplace of the legendary fishing dory. Lowell’s is the only remaining survivor of the area’s world-renowned dory manufacturing industry that produced in excess of a quarter of a million dories over a period of two centuries. Building more than 2000 boats in 1911, this business was one of the first in the nation to employ a seminal form of assembly line manufacturing.
