HISTORY OF THE SHIPYARD "MARE ISLAND"


The title of this article pretty much says it all about what this short story is all about.  

One of the most interesting items I find in the history of a 'place' is "How did such a slab of land acquire its name?"  Well this one is a bit unusual on how this 'name' came to be attached to this 'island'....and then once acquired, the name stuck and was never changed.

Anyway this piece has some excellent pictures in it and I believe it is a fairly interesting tidbit of Naval history that needs to be told.

So if you wish to read this short little slice of history....just click on the below title.
