Abstract
This historic context develops criteria for the evaluation of the physical remains of the ship and boatbuilding industry in Delaware between 1830 and 1940 to determine their significance and potential eligibility for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. By examining technology, the construction process of ships and boats, and ship yard organization, this historic context will explore a segment of Delaware's industrial heritage that reached numerous cities and towns along Delaware's coastal waterways and extended well beyond the Brandywine River in the north (traditionally thought of as the industrial center of Delaware).
