Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Drydock No. 3, Farragut Avenue, Bremerton, Kitsap County, WA
Significance: Drydock No. 3 is located within the boundaries of the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard National Historic Landmark District and is considered by the National Park Service to be a contributing property within the District. Drydocks within the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard were able to accommodate the largest battleships and aircraft carriers during World War II. Thus, the shipyard played an important role in the repair and redeployment of battleships, carriers and smaller warships after the Pearl Harbor attack and for the duration of the war. These accomplishments contributed to the success of the American task forces in the Pacific. Drydock No. 3 is one of six industrial structures within the Landmark District that has been identified as highly significant to the World War II warship repair effort.
