“in the historic seaport town of Jonesport”
The Maine Coast Sardine History Museum is located in the historic seaport town of Jonesport, Maine. Jonesport was home to as many as 15 canneries. The canneries ranged from small family operated to large company owned, such as the William Underwood Company. The museum currently covers the industry along the Maine Coast from Robbinston to South Portland. The exhibits include hundreds of photographs, original cans, labels, packaging, crates, letterheads, and billheads. Exhibits also include original fishing, processing, and canning equipment. The museum covers the entire process from fishing, processing, and canning to shipping. Every cannery documented is presented in displays grouped by the towns in which they were located. The displays are not limited to just sardines as the canneries often processed other Maine seafood products.
