Kingston Shipbuilding, Kingston ON

Most recent update: February 18, 2015.


The dry-dock in Kingston was built by the federal government in 1890 and the yard was a repair facility until it was leased to Kingston Shipbuilding in 1910.  Kingston Shipbuilding operated it until 1968.   It is now part of the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes, which you can visit here.  See the shipyard from the air on Google here.
