ABOUT ALLEN’S DOCK
The lure of Allen’s Dock starts with a man named Chet Allen. Chet built Allen’s Dock in 1923. Chet was married to Belle Valiant, the son of George Valiant. George was a menhaden boat captain for the McKeever Brothers. The McKeever Brothers owned the fish factory on Crab Island between 1910 and 1926. Along with the fish factory the McKeever brothers also owned the property we all know as Allen’s Dock. The McKeever Brothers sold the property to George and though it may be cliche to say it - the rest is history… and what a history!
A menhaden is commonly called a “bunker” around here. And through the years there’s been a lot of fish called “bunker,” and a few men called “George!” As of December of 2021, George Kurtz became the most recent of a long list of New Gretna history. George purchased the dock from George McGeoch, who took over for his father over 40 years ago. Before George there was Ruby McAnney. Rube acquired Allen’s Dock after the passing of his friend, Chet Allen. Chet considered Ruby his right hand man and left Ruby the marina under the condition that it would always be called “Allen’s Dock.”
Join us as we pay homage to this piece of bunker bait history! Next year will be 100 years of “Allen’s Dock.” With over 70 boat slips, a bait and tackle shop, mechanic on site, brokerage services, travel lift, boat launching service, dry dock and winter storage Allen’s Dock can help you with all of your boating and fishing needs. Drive in and see us at 5698 Route 9 in New Gretna or float in and see us on that ole’ Bass River across from Viking Yacht and Breeze’s.
