About this title


Relive the excitement and bustle of life in an early New England seaport, where men unloaded barrels of whale oil from waiting boats, the smell of freshly caught clams cut through the salty air, and the bell of a distant lighthouse tolled a melancholy sound. Inspired by the famous seaport restoration of Mystic, Connecticut, this full-color replica re-creates scenes of bygone days, when fishing, whaling, and shipbuilding made seaports important centers of American life.
Complete step-by-step instructions and exploded diagrams explain how to cut, fold, and assemble 11 three-dimensional buildings accurately rendered on heavy card stock. They include a Lighthouse, Captain's House, Cooper's Shop, Ship Chandlery, Fish Shack, Lifesaving Station, Tavern, Shipsmith's Shop, Clam House, Sparmaker's Shop, and Outhouse. You'll also find a full array of boats, a wagon, a pier, and shop signs — everything you need to build this authentic model of a nineteenth-century seaport. Informative captions relate the function of each building and a brief Introduction supplies fascinating historical background.
