World War II

— Boston National Historical Park —

The Charlestown Navy Yard served the nation for 174 years as a base of the building, outfitting, repair, and modernization of ships. During World War II, the yard's busiest years, almost 50,000 men and women worked here, around the clock, seven days a week, as part of America's massive war effort. The gatehouse in which you are standing was built in 1959. It replaced the old Main Gate shown in the photograph built in 1901. Courtesy Boston Globe.
