Notes
Survey number HAER MA-26-B
Building/structure dates: 1916 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1943 subsequent work
Significance: Constructed in 1916 and enlarged in 1943, the Apprentice School housed the Quincy-Fore River Shipyard training school for nearly 70 years. With the exception of welding, the courses of instruction taught here included the wide range of specialized skills required for shipbuilding. In its capacity as a training center, the building is an integral component of the shipyard and reflects its development and the shipbuilding processes throughout most of the yard's history.
