Rockland is a city in Knox County, Maine, in the United States. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 7,609. It is the county seat of Knox CountyGR6.

Rockland is the commercial center of the midcoast Maine region, with many historic inns and is home to the Farnsworth Art Museum.

Atlantic Challenge/Apprentice Shop

The Apprenticeshop is one of the oldest and finest traditional boat building schools in the country. Begun in 1972 within the complex of The Maine Maritime Museum in Bath and founded by Lance Lee, the ‘Shop was inspired by the philosophy of Kurt Hahn—who believed that education should encourage both thought and action, not one or the other, but both at once. Lee believed that practicing resourcefulness and learning through boatbuilding—a medium that requires decisions, care, patience, forethought, and time, is as important as learning boatbuilding.


More than three decades have passed since the first keel was laid in a newly resurrected ‘Shop in Bath, and our mission has never changed. Thousands of apprentices, interns, volunteers and visitors have passed through, and hundreds of examples of work have left the ‘Shop floor for new lives on the water. While we are drawn to the beauty and function of the craft we produce, we are confident that it is not solely about the boats.

Formerly known as Tillson's Wharf, this property was acquired in June 1941 by the U.S. Navy to be used as a naval section base during WWII. It was given to the Coast Guard in 1943 and became Base Rockland along with the wharf now known as Coast Guard Moorings. Coast Guard Moorings has been used by many Coast Guard Cutters over the years and now serves the ABBIE BURGESS, THUNDER BAY, TACKLE and Station small boats.


Maine Lighthouse Museum

The collection was formerly displayed at the Shore Village Museum until its closing in October, 2004.
