Summary

Significance: Part of naval complex. Buiding 46 is a contributing element of the Mare Island Historic District. Building 46 is arguably the most important building at Mare Island and is a candidate for the short list of the most important historic military resources in California. It is the oldest building at Mare Island as well as the oldest building in the key shipyard area of the base. It was the first building to be initiated during the tenure of Commander David Farragut as commander of the shipyard. Architecturally, it is among the most interesting and handsome of the many brick industrial shipyard buildings at Mare Island.
