Port Jefferson

Port Jefferson
It would have been difficult to find an adult male in mid-19th Century Port Jefferson who wasn't employed in building wooden vessels. It was a time when Long Island was a major ship producer, and Port Jefferson was the local industry's capital. The village turned out 327 wooden vessels between the late 1700s and 1884, and during the peak years of construction in the 1850s, when the village's population was about 300, there were 12 shipyards.
