During WWII, Cushing's Point was transformed from a neighborhood to a revolutionary shipyard. The first shipyard was the Todd-Bath Iron yard (East Yard) and second was South Portland Shipbuilding (West Yard). The two shipyards eventually merged into one 140-acre site and became the New England Shipbuilding Corporation. Following the war effort, portions of the former shipyard were redeveloped into the Spring Point Marina, Breakwater Condominiums, Bug Light Park and the Gulf Oil tank farm. Below are historic photos of the shipyard (courtesy of South Portland Historical Society) and previous development proposals for the Yard South site.
