    Manhasset Bay Shipyard has probably been used as a marine facility as far back as the post-Civil War period. In 1887, Elbert Stannard, a local resident and retired clipper ship captain, started a business converting wooden warships -- made obsolete by steam engines and iron cladding -- into freight and passenger vessels. Stannard's business likely included the current shipyard property. In 1889, six wooden warships and two coastal schooners owned by Stannard burned in a spectacular fire of unknown origin off Plum Point. Today, the small creek that runs along the southern side of the shipyard is known as Stannard's Creek.
