October 2013 – Mare Island Tour

The all-day tour of Mare Island Navy Yard included the interior of the base commander’s classical revival residence and the craftsman chapel, which houses the largest collection of Tiffany stained glass windows west of the Mississippi. Members viewed numerous other structures representative of the yard’s periods of significance, dating from 1856 through World War II, including a massive glass-curtain-wall factory building constructed in 1940.
