Scobie Fish & Oyster Company
Commercial fishing has long been a staple of Titusville’s economy. In 1885, a Connecticut fisherman named George W. Scobie arrived in his schooner and established what would eventually become a large fishing fleet. With the arrival of the railroad, the Scobie Fish & Oyster Company became a major supplier of seafood to the cities of the East Coast. He also operated a local ferry service with his steamer Ancient City.
