Ingalls Iron Works was established in 1910, by Robert Ingalls, in Titusville Alabama. It became the largest steel company in the region. Looking for new opportunities for the steel company, Ingalls opened Ingalls Shipyard in 1937 to build dredges, tugboats, and barges for coastal and river service. Ingalls Shipyard produced a variety of watercraft for government, including “Liberty” boats, vital for transatlantic supply routes. As World War II approached, the yard’s small size forced Ingalls to look for a larger site and relocated to Pascagoula MS.
