L. H. Shattuck Shipyard, Portsmouth NH

Most recent update: March 12, 2016.


The L. H. Shattuck shipyard was established in 1918, on a 110-acre site in the Newington section of Portsmouth, and folded in 1919.  The shipyard site was redeveloped by Atlantic Dyestuff Company, which failed in the Depression, and since then the site has been used by a heating oil terminal.  Some of these vessels were unpowered - design 1113 - but it is not clear which.  The remains of the incomplete and abandoned hulls can still be seen at low tide.  See the site from the air on Google here.
