About

Dravo's Neville Island shipyard, in Pittsburgh, was started in 1919.  It was activated by the Navy for WWII, to build LSTs, with an investment of $12mm.  After the war it was a ship scrapping facility for a few years and then returned to building inland river barges and towboats.  It closed in 1983.
