We had a wonderful 4 hour tour with volunteer George. Ask for George--he is the greatest. He is full of knowledge and very enthusiastic. He is very exacting with his facts about the history of Mare Island. The volunteers we met in the museum are lovely. You will see the museum, the commandant's house, and the magnificent St. Peter's Chapel (1901) with beautiful Tiffany windows. You will learn about the history of shipbuilding and repair and see so many historic buildings. George took us to many sites and told in detail about each one. We saw the new developments on the island--new houses, commercial reuse of old buildings and Touro University.
