San Diego Naval Station

The property on which Naval Station San Diego is now located was deeded to the U.S. government by the city of San Diego on September 3, 1919 to build a docking and fleet repair base. The property consisted of 21 water acres and 77.2 land acres with the former being mostly tidelands and marsh flats.

On February 15, 1921, the U.S. Navy acquired the land, buildings, and some machinery. Later that year, on June 10th, the USS Praire, commanded by Cmdr. H. N. Jenson, was ordered to the area to take over and prepare the site for receipt of destroyers which would soon be decommissioned. A marine railway was also begun, and on February 23, 1922, U.S. Destroyer Base San Diego was created by General Order 78.

Located in San Diego, NS San Diego houses Aegis Training Support, Commander Amphibious  Group 3, Consolidated Divers Unit and Naval Investigative Service.
