Cape Cod Contraband:
Rum Running

& the Era of Prohibition

DATE: Wed., April 24, 7pm
LOCATION: Sandwich Glass Museum, 1
29 Main St.

FREE - Donations welcome. By Don Wilding. During the Prohibition (1920-1933), rum running was a big business on Cape Cod. Farmers and fishermen of the Cape took to the seas, heading offshore to "Rum Row" to bring the criminal yet coveted alcohol to the mainland under cover of darkness, while the possibility of being caught by the Coast Guard was always present. Busy harbors and remote estuaries, many of which are now popular tourist destinations, were all game for bringing contraband ashore, while local law enforcement officials often turned a blind eye. Join Cape Cod historian Don Wilding for this comprehensive look at how "the Noble Experiment" turned into a profitable and potentially dangerous undertaking for many of the Cape's residents.
