Naval Base Charleston existed for nearly a hundred years. On this day in 1996, the Base officially closed with a ceremony in front of the Shipyard Commander Headquarters. Today the Naval Base Memorial at the Riverfront Park honors the service of countless people, civilian and military, who worked here.
