Naval Shipyard Portsmouth

Often referred to as Portsmouth Navy Yard, it holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating shipyard in the U.S. Navy. The yard was founded in 1800 to serve as a center for warship construction and maintenance. Its location with deepwater access and swift currents to prevent ice blockage made it a perfect location. Today the yard primarily focuses on the complex task of overhauling, refueling, and modernizing existing submarines to ensure they remain operational for decades to come.
