The steamboat Sabino is the oldest wooden, coal-fired steamboat in regular operation in the U.S. Built in 1908 in East Boothbay, Maine, by W. Irving Adams, she spent most of her career ferrying passengers and cargo between Maine towns and islands. From 1927 to 1960 she served the islands of Casco Bay, running out of Portland. She is still powered by the two-cylinder Paine compound steam engine installed in 1908. Sabino was purchased by Mystic Seaport Museum in 1974 to serve as a working exhibit. She is operated during the warmer months on regularly scheduled runs for the enjoyment and education of visitors. The Sabino was formally designated a National Historic Landmark in 1992.

Greenmanville Church

Hold your ceremony at the historic Greenmanville Church and you are a pleasant stroll away from your reception — no matter where on grounds you choose to have it.

Built during the heyday of shipbuilding activity in Mystic about 1851, the Greenmanville Seventh-Day Baptist Church was the focus of the town’s considerable Seventh-Day Baptist community. The congregation, which was an offshoot of the Greenman brothers’ own home parish in Westerly, Rhode Island, built the church (the original site is adjacent to the present main entrance to Mystic Seaport Museum) largely through the support of the Greenman and Fish shipbuilding families.

With the decline of the shipyard during the 1870s and 1880s, the congregation was depleted and the church was finally closed in 1904. After passing from hand to hand as a private residence and apartment building, the old church was acquired by Mystic Seaport Museum in 1955. The Greenmanville Church is available for ceremonies from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 5 to 6:30 p.m.
