St. Louis Ship, St. Louis MO (Barges)

Most recent update: June 12, 2010.


St. Louis Ship was located on the site at the foot of East Davis Street in the Carondelet section of St. Louis, where James B. Eads built the Union Navy's gunboats during the Civil War.  It was called the Rohan Boat, Boiler & Tank Company when it was acquired by Herman Pott in 1933 and renamed St. Louis Shipbuilding & Steel Co.  It closed in 1984.  See the site from the air on Google here.  This table covers the yard's prodigious output of barges: to see its production of self-propelled vessels, click here.
