Free Tour: Mare Island Naval Shipyard: The Navy in Vallejo
Founded in 1854, Mare Island Naval Shipyard became the Navy’s largest civilian shipyard, employing 40,000 during its peak production in WWII. Enjoy this walking tour guided by longtime Mare Island activist Myrna Hayes, and see the former production facilities and living quarters of this remarkable place. Hear about the women welders, and see the workshops of those who built, maintained and serviced Naval Ships until the base closed in 1996, a proud achievement of our peace movement commonly known as turning swords into plowshares, in this case, a park. Bring a lunch to enjoy at the picnic grounds before the afternoon program. Finally, pay respects to those who have passed on at the Mare Island Cemetery. Ferry Service is available from San Francisco Ferry Building, and public transportation is also available from the DelNorte BART station.
