Mare Island Naval Shipyard

Mare Island Naval Shipyard is a former United States Navy shipyard located in Vallejo, California. Established in 1854, it was the first naval base on the West Coast and played a crucial role in the development of the US Navy's Pacific Fleet. During World War II, the shipyard was a major contributor to the war effort, repairing and building ships, and employing over 40,000 workers at its peak. Today, the site has been repurposed as a mixed-use development that includes a museum, a golf course, and residential and commercial spaces. Visitors can take a tour of the Mare Island Historic Park, which includes the Mare Island Naval Shipyard Museum and the historic Officer's Mansion. The museum features exhibits that detail the history of the shipyard and the contributions it made to the US Navy.
