Vallejo's Mare Island Naval Shipyard served as a vital defense installation; during World War I the destroyer USS Ward was built there in less than 18 days. Of particular interest is St. Peter's Chapel, which dates from 1901 and is believed to be the oldest military chapel in the country. Phone (707) 280-5742 for a tour reservation to view the chapel's 29 Tiffany windows.
