1869 - 1975

Purser, mate, trader, Shipowner, venturer, Joshua Green began his waterfront career on Puget Sound in 1888 when steamboating was in its infancy. He founded the LA Conner Trading and Transportation Company, operating freight and passenger steamers, and eventually became president of the Pugent Sound Navigation Company, preeminent water carrier of the sound. His ownership of vessels ranged from early paddle-wheelers to swift passenger vessels, including shares in the unique six-master barkentine Everett G. Griggs. His legacy to the Northwest maritime industry is the modern Washington State Ferry System.
