The History of Shipbuilding in Marystown, NL, Canada

Creator(s): Marystown Heritage-Museum Corporation

The Marystown area, Newfoundland, tradition of shipbuilding is a long one. This exhibit traces this history from the first settlers to the many schooners built in the area, to the businesses that built and owned ships in the area; to the ships that were built for World War II at Marystown Co-operative Enterprise, to the wooden longliners built at the Marystown Shipyard, and finally, to steel shipbuilding and repairs at the current Marystown Shipyard and Cow Head facility.
