Howard Shipyard, Jeffersonville IN

(later Jeffersonville Boat & Machine Works, or JeffBoat)

Most recent update: In process, May 2014.


The Howard Ship Yard Company was founded by James Howard, at Jeffersonville IN in 1834.  Howard died in 1876, but his family continued the business until 1941, when the U.S. Government assumed control and created a new company, called Jeffersonville Boat & Machine Works, or JeffBoat.  (To see JeffBoat's record, click here.)  Howard's history is memorialized at the Howard Steamboat Museum and its records are in the Lilly Library at the University of Indiana.  The company's output is said to have been around 3000 vessels, the equivalent of close to 30 vessels a year, but this seems unlikely.  The table below contains about 450 vessels, so there are many more to be added.  If anyone can help make this table more complete, please e-mail your info to me at timcolton@aol.com
