Photo: "Winery & Fuel Depot"


This location was a former winery, once known as the largest in the world, which closed down in 1919 due to prohibition.

In 1941, the Navy purchased the land and turned the property into a fuel depot, which remained in operation for 54 years.  

Like many other military sites in the United States, this one was decommissioned in 1995 due to the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) program.
