Waldoboro was incorporated in 1773 and developed a reputation as a ship building and port facility from the banks of the Medomak River. Industries would include an iron foundry, an oakum mill, a carding and cloth-dressing mill, a grain mill, sawmills and planing mills, furniture and molding mills, a door, sash and blind factory, and a carriage factory. There were also marble and granite yards and a pottery. But ship building was the principal business, with eight large vessels built in 1880. During the 19th century Maine became famous for its great shipbuilding center. A port of entry, the town features an 1857 custom house designed by Ammi B. Young.
