2023 Annual Conference Program Information

October 21-24, 2023 | Kittery Point, ME

This year’s annual conference will be hosted by the Wood Island Life Saving Station Assoc in Kittery Pt. ME.

There will be visits to local USCG stations as well as nearby maritime museums and historic wooden boat shops.

The highlight will be visits to Maine life saving stations in Biddeford and Kittery Pt.

The Wood Island Station has been undergoing a total restoration since 2016 and this will be an excellent opportunity to inspect the progress.

There will be a members dinner on Friday evening at nearby Atlantic Grill, which enjoys historic life saving service decor.

Registration is currently open to USLSSHA members only. If interested, please contact [email protected] for more information.

The U.S. Life-Saving Service Heritage Association (USLSSHA) is an organization dedicated to preserving the history of the U.S. Life-Saving Service and early US Coast Guard. The association is a national nonprofit, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to preserving America’s fast-vanishing lifesaving stations and early Coast Guard lifeboat stations. Few other groups of historic American buildings are more endangered than our lifesaving and lifeboat stations. To a far greater extent even than lighthouses, Life-Saving Stations are still being lost and falling into tragic disrepair.
