The Naval Historical Foundation, for the duration of a renovation project  to building 57 at the historic Washington Navy Yard in southeast Washington, DC, is located on the ground floor of building 218 in Suite 118. This project is likely to last from July 2015 until late 2016. Our mailing address remains at 1306 Dahlgren Ave, SE, Washington Navy Yard, DC, 20374-5055.


Please note that Navy security restrictions limit visitors’ access to the Navy Yard and thus to the Naval Historical Foundation. While we warmly welcome our Foundation members, Navy veterans, and any member of the American public interested in our navy heritage, we strongly recommend you call ahead to the Foundation staff before planning a visit to our offices, so that we may assure your access through the Navy Yard Security Department.
