Artifact
View Birchbark Canoe
Maine State Museum, Artifact

In a letter dated 2-2-73 to rep Curtis, this canoe is said to have been built in the late 18th century by Mrs. Kenny's family (the Davies and Willard), to ascend the Kennebec River to settle at Williamsburg Township in 1780-1785. The canoe, however, follows a Penobscot or Malicite pattern. It may be of considerable age since its gunwales are lashed unlike later bark canoes. However, the gunwale cap is nailed on and the nails appear to be cut (not hand forged) suggesting that it is unlikely that the canoe was made much before c. 1800 (as this is the conventional date given for the introduction of cut nails in most northeastern markets).

Loading up the teams
Maine Historical Society, Still Image

Fishing and hunting expeditions into Maine's north woods in the late 1800s required travel by boat, train, and horse drawn wagons to transport the gear to and from camp. Here we see the men adjusting the canoes and loads after passing the Great Carrying Place near Roach Pond and Ragged Lake in the Moosehead Lake Region.
