Shipyard No. 3

You are standing in Shipyard No. 3, which represents one of the many industrial complexes which operated to support America in World War II. Over 90,000 skilled and unskilled workers from across the country relocated to Richmond, California to find gainful work in the shipyards.
To ensure safe and efficient twenty-four hours-a-day production in the yards, many workers received around-the-clock food service, child care, and health services.
Today, Shipyard No. stands as a testament to the nationwide home front effort, which included for the first time on a large scale the work of women and people of color. It is also a tribute to the crucial contributions of Richmond, California.
