This man-made island was designed and constructed in 1848 by a local engineer, James McEntee, to store the coal shipped by D and H Canal from Pennsylvania. The coal was transferred by steam-operated elevators to river barges for shipment to New York and New England. After the canal's closing, the facility was converted for ship building, especially during World War I and II.
