The Vallejo Museum Blog comes to you from the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum in Vallejo, California. Vallejo was founded as California's state capital and for 142 years the city was the home of the Mare Island Naval Shipyard. The Vallejo Museum Blog is a place to tell stories about the history of Vallejo and Mare Island, and to share news about exhibits and events at the Museum. As we like to say at the Vallejo Museum, "History Involves You!" so feel free to join in the discussion if you have an interesting historical tale to tell.
