Most recent update: March 22, 2020.


The grandly named International Shipbuilding was one of a bunch of small shipbuilders which flourished in Nyack in the late 19th/early 20th century.  It was organized for WWI in 1917 and dropped out of the market in the mid-1920s.  Who owned it?  If anyone can add to the table below, please e-mail timcolton@aol.com
