Lobster Pound

Lobster Pound 1975

The first inland lobster pound was established using wooden tanks. The following year the wooden tanks were switched to fiberglass tanks. Being inland and lobsters requiring salt water, special accommodations had to be made. Water would be hauled from the nearby harbor and held in an underground tank that was refrigerated and circulated throughout the fiberglass tanks.

In addition to this a cultural display room was added to enable the customers to view the lobster pound and educate the diners on these incredible crustaceans.
