About Builders
 Peck & Masters, Cleveland
At the age of 25, Captain Eli Peck set up his own yard in among already existing shipyards, dry docks, and related establishments near what is now West 58th Street in Cleveland along the Cuyahoga River. In 1849 Eli Peck entered into a partnership with Irvine U. Masters to form a shipbuilding giant that bore their names, Peck & Masters. This partnership would last until Masters dies in 1865, Peck would continue on building another 50 ships in the next seven years. He would close the shipyard in 1872 to follow other endevers.
