302 Stories: Telling the Stories of Delaware’s People and Places
Join Bayside Institute for the fourth documentary of this five-part series, Wood Shavings to Hot Sparks: The History of Shipbuilding in Milford, Delaware. For over 200 years, the history of Milford, Delaware was intimately tied to its shipbuilding industry. Yet today only one shipyard remains—the former Vinyard Shipbuilding Company—brought back from near abandonment by a determined couple. Along with a committed group of volunteers, they now work in the yard’s historic buildings, preserving the renowned Vinyard boats using the same tools that built them, and re-discovering Milford’s shipbuilding history along the way.
