Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1543
National Register Number: 75002103
Significance: The Mare Island Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places for its significance under National Register criteria A, C, and D, in the areas of military history, industry, architecture, engineering, and historic archeology. The period of significance extended from 1854, when the shipyard was founded, to 1945, the end of World War II. The significance of this property is discussed in greater detail under "Historic Context." Briefly, Mare Island was the first Navy yard on the West Coast and was at the forefront of ship construction and repair on the Pacific Ocean from the 1850s through World War II. In addition to its shipyard function, Mare Island was also home to an important Naval Hospital, Marine Corps detachment, and ammunition depot, and includes a very substantial stock of historic housing. It is arguably the most important Navy facility on the West Coast and was listed in the National Register at the national level of significance.
