Chain Forge (Building 105)

In this former Navy building, enormous chain links were forged for ships in World War II. After lying vacant for decades, the Chain Forge was designated in 2014 for development as a hotel by the Kavanaugh Advisory Group. Its large historic equipment remains in the building and may be on display in the future.
