Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard



The Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard


The Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard can be found on League Island in the Delaware River in the City of Philadelphia.  It has served many purposes over its lifetime which dates back to 1801.  Many large scale operations took place during the 20th century when the Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard saw its part in the production of Naval ships and aircrafts.  During World War I, the Naval Ship Yard produced aircraft and during World War II, the Naval Ship Yard not only constructed new ships but also repaired damaged ships.  Post World War II the Naval Ship Yard served in smaller functions as the Naval Air Material Center and the Naval Air Engineering Center.  The last ship was completed in 1970.
