The Locks & Ship Canal were built over 100 years ago as a
Commercial Navigation Route to Develop the City of Seattle. The Locks still contribute over $1.2 Billion/yr. to the Seattle economy and are the Nation's busiest. However, no fees are charged and funding comes from the Federal Government (not Seattle).

The Bremerton Historic Ships Association was created in 1988 as a non-profit organization to acquire vessels, operate programs, and activities for educational, historic, and memorial purposes. The vision of a naval heritage vessel on the Bremerton Waterfront became a reality when the USS TURNER JOY was located here in 1991.
