“Open Mare Island” Self-Guided Tours

"Open Mare Island" Self-Guided Tours

Walk through 142 years of Mare Island Naval Shipyard history. Join this free touring event as you follow a printed driving & walking guide through Mare Island, stopping at docent-staffed key sites located at:

  • St. Peter’s Chapel
  • Alden Park
  • Historic Core
  • Naval Cemetery @ the Preserve

Start at Quarters Coffee House to pick up your tour map and enjoy a cup of coffee, compliments of Mare Island Co. Then, wander your way through history as you move from location to location where Mare Island Historic Park Foundation docents will be stationed to share history with you as well as direct you to your next stop. There will also be sites included that are on a driving tour of the island.
