NAVSEA Dedicates New Building to First US Warship Designer

Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) headquarters officially opened its recently redesigned, renovated and renamed building with a ceremony April 20 at the Washington Navy Yard.

With a nod to NAVSEA’s mission, Building 197 will be known as the Humphreys Building, named in honor of Joshua Humphreys, the original designer of the U.S. Navy’s first six frigates.

During the 17-month-long renovation, NAVSEA took the opportunity to bridge the gap between naval history and current innovations in shipbuilding with help from the Naval History and Heritage Command and the National Museum of the United States Navy.
