Lake Washington Shipyard, Houghton WA

(formerly the Anderson Shipyard)

Most recent update: October 22, 2016.


This shipyard was started by George Bartch and Harry Tompkins in 1900: in 1907 they sold it to their premier client, John Anderson, of Anderson Steamboat Company.  The Anderson yard built wooden tugs and ferries until 1923, when it was sold to Charles Burckardt, who renamed it The Lake Washington Shipyard and converted it to steel shipbuilding.  During WWII, its workforce grew to 9,000 employees and it was a major repairer of small ships as well as a builder.  It closed in the 1960s and its site is now the commercial/residential development at Carillon Point: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
