Babare Bros. Shipbuilding, Tacoma WA
Stephen Babare and his sons Nick and George were, like so many boatbuilders in the Pacific Northwest, from Croatia. They started their shipyard - originally called Babare Ship & Launch Builders - in the late 1890s and closed it in 1923. It was located next to Crawford & Reid, at the foot of N. Carr Street, in Old Town Tacoma, where the Silver Cloud Inn is today: see the site from the air on Google here. If anyone can add to the table below, please email email@example.com.
