June 10, 2023, 12 PM - 1PM and 3:15-4:15 PM

Exclusive 1-hour Shipyard History Tour
Join Stacey Carter for a fascinating 1-hour guided history tour of Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco.

Through buildings visible at the Shipyard overlook, Carter will take you on a chronological journey, highlighting its military development from 1867 to the Cold War and its present-day significance.
