US Navy SeeBee on our Shores Again

Bob and Janet stopped by the museum on our Historic Homes and Museum tour yesterday. Robert had been stationed on Grand Turk during the summer of 1959 with the SeaBees along with 300 other young men of MCB7 who came to build North Base.

After their scheduled tour, we took an unscheduled tour up to the base and looked around. When Bob was here, they were just building the water catchment and first barracks, so it looks very different today. But he had many stories as the memories returned.

For the museum his visit could not have been more timely. We were just talking about where one would begin research on the construction of the bases…evidently with the U.S. Navy Seabees. Thank you very much and we hope you enjoyed your tour
