About the presentation: Join us for a Scholarly Selections presentation about The Skansie Shipbuilding Company. The Skansie family settled in Gig Harbor and became renowned shipbuilders producing over 200 wooden vessels known for their quality and craftsmanship. The Skansies not only made their mark on maritime history, but represent how immigrants turned patriotic citizens contributed to the Pacific Northwest.
