Notes
Survey number HAER CA-295-I
Building/structure dates: 1943 initial construction
Significance: The control house is a contributing structure in the United Engineering Company Shipyard historic district that has been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The United Engineering Company Shipyard, established in 1941 to build and repair ships for the U.S. Navy, is the last surviving of several large World War II shipyards in Alameda. United Engineering built 21 tugboats and repaired hundreds of ships during the war. The facility was one of the largest employers in Alameda and played an important economic and social role in the city. As the control house for a large dry dock that no longer exists, this building represents the ship repair part of the shipyard's business.
