Ingalls' Iron Works was originally established in 1910 by Robert Ingalls, in Titusville, Alabama, and grew to be the largest steel company in the region. The shipyard in Decatur, Alabama, on the Tennessee River, was started in 1937. As World War II approached, the yard’s small size forced Ingalls to look for a bigger site, first in Birmingham, Alabama, then in Chickasaw, Alabama, and finally in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Ingalls’ shipbuilding interests were sold to Litton Industries in 1961 then to Trinity Industries in 1981. Trinity closed the Decatur yard due to inspections that revealed the yard’s facilities were outdated and would require significant capital investment. Trinity opted to shut down the yard, ending 44 years of shipbuilding in Decatur.
The pavilion seats 1,200+ people and may be used as an open air facility or enclosed with glass doors and heating which allows practical use throughout the year. The Ingalls Harbor Pavilion is wonderful for our multiple fishing tournaments and other special events held throughout the year. The facility is available for private rentals on the 1/2 day (6 hours) or full day (15 hours max). Additional time is $200 per hour.
