About Chelsea

Chelsea is a city located in Suffolk County, Massachusetts, just across the Mystic River from downtown Boston. It is known as the "City of Ships" due to its rich history in shipbuilding and maritime trade. In the 19th century, Chelsea was one of the busiest ports on the East Coast, with hundreds of ships being built and launched from its shipyards. The city played a crucial role in the transportation of goods and people, serving as a hub for the shipping industry. Today, Chelsea continues to have a strong connection to freight transportation, with several major highways and rail lines passing through the city.

One of the notable landmarks in Chelsea is the Chelsea Naval Hospital, which was established in 1836 to provide medical care to sailors and shipbuilders. The hospital played a vital role in supporting the maritime industry and treating injured sailors. Over the years, the hospital expanded its services and became a major medical center. Although the hospital closed in 1974, the historic buildings still stand and have been repurposed for various uses. The hospital's rich history is a testament to Chelsea's maritime heritage and its importance in the transportation of goods and people.
