There are three nonprofits on the East Side of Boothbay Harbor.
The Fishermen's Memorial Foundation
The Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation
The Boothbay East Side Waterfront Park Group
The Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation (BRMF) is sometimes confused with the East Side Waterfront Park group. Learn more about their mission at their website.
The Fishermen's Memorial Foundation maintains a memorial park and dory monument overlooking the harbor in front of the Catholic Church. They do not have a website.
The sole mission of BRMF is to preserve commercial working waterfront and our maritime heritage. WE ARE NOT BUILDING A PARK. Our educational efforts include documenting current commercial working waterfront activities, preserving photos and artifacts from our maritime heritage, and protecting access to the waterfront for commercial uses. Our current projects include an ongoing collaboration with the Penobscot Marine Museum to digitize fishing related photos from the Boothbay Region and rebuilding two piers in the Working Waterfront district.
