This tribute was planned by military veterans and the City of North Charleston to the thousands of men and women who served their country and the civilians who labored at the base for 95 years before it closed in 1996.
An open pavilion boasts a vertical wall that curves over visitors’ heads like the side of a ship. On multiple panels on the wall the base’s storied history is told, from its inception on the grounds of an old plantation in 1901 until the last of the fleet set sail in 1996.
A stream flows through the memorial, meant to be reminiscent of sailors crossing gangways. Five lighted flagpoles feature flags of the United States, South Carolina, North Charleston, the Navy and the Marine Corps.
