At the fitting-out pier new vessels received their equipment and finishing work. This pier had a ramp built into its southern side, to land the large timbers and spars that were floated down the river from the railroad yards.

The original 1898 north wharf was expanded in 1902 and again in 1906, when it grew to about 100 feet square and projected into deeper water. It has been reconstructed to its appearance in the years 1909-1920.
