The Augusta

    “302 Stories” shared with First the history of the Augusta.  At the turn of the 20th century it was a state of the art ship.  The Lofland’s bought the Vinyard shipyard as a way to preserve the history of Milford, since it was the last remaining shipyard on the Mispillion.  We also see how they brought the ship back to life as a way to continue that history.
