1885-1974

1885 Marcellus M. Davis established his shipyard at this location, in 1913 the yard was moved to larger quarters across the harbor on Mill Creek. During the 1930's, Davis' yard produced many outstanding wooden yachts which brought international fame to Solomons. The High Tide won nearly every race she entered until she was handicapped so heavily her owner, Eugene DuPont, refused to race or sell her. The Davis-built Manitou (President Kennedy's yacht one summer) won several Mackinac Straits races until defeated by White Cloud, another Davis-built yacht.
