DAVIE SHIPYARD NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE The year 1829 was a major turning point in the history of Canadian shipbuilding: the Davie family established a shipyard in L�vis that would become one of the largest in the country! The Davies then moved into their new home in Pointe-Levy and installed a hauling berth, the first in Canada, to hoist ships out of the water so they could be repaired beyond the reach of the tides. Cast your anchor at the A.C. Davie Shipyard and discover the historical ins and outs of a great shipyard. The site was once home to the Davies, a family of entrepreneurs who introduced new technologies to the ship-building industry. The oldest hauling ramp on the continent is located here. Take a tour of the A.C. Davie Shipyard Historical Site, either on your own or with a guide. See the exhibition showcasing the skills of the company's workers and visit Homestead, the 22-room house built for the Davie family in 1832.
