Puget Sound Naval Shipyard Area Apartment Housing
Charged with maintaining and modernizing the Navy fleet, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility is the largest naval shore facility in the Pacific Northwest. It is also one of Washington State’s largest industrial installations. When the facility was established in 1891, it was a Naval Station. In 1901, it became Navy Yard Puget Sound. Puget Sound Naval Shipyard is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark.
An apartment near Puget Sound Naval Shipyard can likely be found in Bremerton, a city located just north of the shipyard. Residents of Bremerton can take a scenic ferry route directly to downtown Seattle – a 55-minute ferry carries both vehicles and walk-on passengers. Bremerton is home to a popular Blackberry Festival, a waterfront downtown with a boardwalk, and Harborside Fountain Park, a 2.5-acre park on Puget Sound considered one of the area’s most beautiful parks. This park is near Kitsap Conference Center and features wading pools and fountains.
