Snow Shipyards, Rockland ME

(later General Seafoods, now Rockland Marine)

Most recent update: November 15 2017.


Snow Shipbuilding was founded in 1862 by Captain Israel Snow.  It was located at the end of Mechanic Street, adjacent to the Cobb, Butler yard: see the site from the air on Google here.  The Snow family sold it to General Seafoods after WWII.  The western half is now the Sail, Power and Steam Museum - visit it here - while the eastern half is still active as Rockland Marine.
