On July 2, 1925, Navy Dirigible Shenandoah left New Jersey bound for Bar Harbor, Maine to meet attendees of the annual conference of Governors. The conference was held at the world famous Poland Spring Hotel, but Governors from across the country toured the state in the airship, along with other modes of transportation.Show Details
The Navy Airship Shenandoah was the first of four rigid US Navy airships. Two months after the Governors convention, the Shenandoah was torn apart and crashed over Ohio.
