Mare Island Historic Park Foundation

Mare Island 1911

Our Mission is to collect, preserve and interpret the history of Mare Island Naval Shipyard and related entities and to present exhibits and programs that explore, educate and celebrate the diverse military and cultural aspects of the base.  (April 2013)

The Foundation cares for four historic buildings in Mare Island’s National Historic Landmark District:

  • St. Peter’s Chapel Built in 1901 and  renowned for its beautiful, Tiffany-designed stained glass windows
  • Quarters “A”  Built in 1900, it is the  largest (10,500 sq. ft.) of the 13 colonial revival mansions, also known as the Admiral’s Mansion
  • Quarters “B” – A mansion of 7400 sq. ft, also called the “Captain’s Mansion”
  • Building 46  – Built in 1855 as a smithery, then served as the pipe shop, now the Artifacts Museum

Another part of the Mission is to create ship museum displays.
