Historical path from 1777 to today

This historical path from 1777 to today tells a unique love story between the U.S. Navy and Villefranche-sur-Mer.

Click on each panel to read more details.

Our association created this historical path in 2017. The panels are part of a permanent exhibition that can be seen on the walls of the maritime station of the port de la Santé at Villefranche-sur-Mer.

We also created a traveling version for the schools in France in order to pass on the history to the young generations.

NEW! Panels for the USA are ready to be exhibited in the USS Salem floating museum in Quincy, Massachusetts.

A travelling exhibition will be made available for the largest audience and particularly for the Naval Museums and Sixth Fleet veterans associations.
