Charlestown Navy Yard
Established in 1801, the Charlestown Navy Yard is one of the oldest shipbuilding facilities in the US Navy. Designed in large part by Alexander Parris, the Navy Yard played important roles in multiple United States Navy endeavors, from the completion of the 74-gun Independence, the Navy's first ship-of-the-line 1812, to the drydocking of the USS Constitution in 1975. Now part of the Boston National Historical Park, the Navy Yard now has a new mission: to interpret the art and history of naval shipbuilding.
Meet at the “Gate 1” entrance to the Navy Yard, Charlestown.
