Virginia Shipbuilding, Alexandria VA

Most recent update: September 22, 2010.


Little is known about this yard, which was located at Jones Point, on Battery Cove, close to where the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge is being built.  Its main office building is still there, as the Jones Point Army Reserve Center.  If anyone can provide any more information about Virginia Shipbuilding, please e-mail it to me at timcolton@aol.com
