Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1543-C
National Register Number: 75002103
Significance: Part of naval complex. / St. Peter's Chapel is significant as a key contributing element of the Mare Island Historic District, listed in the National Register of Historic Places and as a National Historic Landmark, and individually, as one of the most important chapels owned by the U.S. Navy. Built in 1901, St. Peter's Chapel is the second-oldest Navy chapel in the United States and the oldest on the West Coast. It is a handsome Shingled Gothic church, possessing an impressive display of signed Tiffany art glass windows. It also includes a nearly-complete set of original interior furnishings. The art glass windows as well as commemorative ceiling and wall tablets were contributed by the public, making St. Peter's Chapel an important memorial chapel to U.S. Navy personnel and a symbol of the sense of community that existed at the Mare Island Naval Shipyard through its many years of service. The building is almost completely unmodified, the few alterations to it restricted to small additions at the rear of the building, and to incidental interior modifications, including the installation of a second story room in the vestibule, as well as the installation of new carpet, organ pipes, and lighting fixtures.
