Chickasaw Shipbuilding & Car Company, Chickasaw AL

Record of Pre-WWII Shipbuilding

Chickasaw Shipbuilding was established in 1917 by a subsidiary of U.S. Steel.  It closed after the war but was acquired by Waterman Steamship Lines in 1940 and reopened as Gulf Shipbuilding.  It closed again after WWII but it was revived again in 1979 by Halter Marine, as a builder of supply boats and tugs.  It closed yet again in 1983 and is now a general cargo terminal.
