Greenville Barge Construction Corp. was started in 1957 and renamed Greenville Shipbuilding in 1970.  Mississippi Marine Corp. was started in 1965 and acquired Greenville Shipbuilding in 2000.  They stopped building new boats in the downturn of the 1980s but continue today in the repair business.  The former Greenville Shipbuilding yard is now called the North Yard and is at 2219 Harbor Front Road: see it from the air on Google here.  The Mississippi Marine yard is now called the South Yard and is at 2645 Harbor Front Road: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@ aol.com.
