Osborn Boat Works, Peekskill NY and Croton-on-Hudson NY

Most recent update: August 26, 2014.


Osborn Boat Works was started by William R. Osborn in 1857, in Peekskill, moved to Croton-on-Hudson in 1902 and closed some time in the 1920s.  In Peekskill it was located where Riverfront Green Park is today and in Croton where Senasqua Park is today.  I can find very little information about this yard: if anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
