History of Mariners Harbor
Mariners Harbor was a thriving seaport in the 19th century that did brisk business in seafood and shellfish harvesting. Later on in the 20th century, the waterfront became a hub for ship building, shipping, and dry docking. Standard Oil Company's circa-1907 tugboat number 16, otherwise known as the John McAllister, remains docked at Mariners Harbor and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The neighborhood is largely residential with the main business districts located on South Avenue, Morningstar Road, and Forest Avenue, while Richmond Terrance is primarily industrial.
