75 years after the US Naval Frontier Section Base at Mayport was established on land occupied by Wonderwood by-the Sea, East Mayport and Burnside Beach, this exhibit explores the history of the base and its impact on the Beaches community. From Elizabeth Stark to the USS Stark, from the home front to homeland security and to the ships that will carry the base in to the future-Naval Station Mayport has played a major part on the local and global stage.
