Home of "Old Ironsides"

One of our nation's first naval shipyards was established here at Moulton's Point, Charlestown, in 1800, and remained active until 1971. During that period, the yard contributed greatly to the birth and growth of American naval power, and was the site of significant advances in naval technology, including one of the first two operating dry docks in the country in 1833. The yard is now the permanent home of the U. S. frigate Constitution - "Old Ironsides" - launched nearby in 1797. Still a commissioned ship in the United States Navy, she is America's most famous and best-loved warship.
