Mare Island Naval Shipyard, Vallejo CA

Most recent update: May 21, 2011.


Mare Island Naval Shipyard was established in 1854, with Commodore David Farragut as its first commandant, and closed in 1996.  In 2002, it was transferred to the City of Vallejo, which subdivided it.  Some industries have moved into the yard and one company is using the dry-docks to recycle ships.  Visit the shipyard here and here, and see it from the air on Google here.
