Liberty Station originally served as San Diego’s Naval Training Center (NTC) from 1923 to 1997. The NTC housed over 2.75 million service members before transforming into Liberty Station, a center known for dining, education, history, and arts today.
The Centennial anniversary is not only a milestone for San Diego and its rich military history but also the celebration of a successful adaptive reuse project. Recognizing that Liberty Station is built on the grounds where 1.75 million recruits and 1 million school sailors once walked, is awe-inspiring. Add into this mix of history the ability to enjoy dining, arts, retail, office space, hotels, schools, worship, and recreation is even more reason to love visiting Liberty Station!
To celebrate our centennial anniversary in 2023, we want to honor the stories of NTC recruits and share their favorite memories across @libertystation's social media channels. If you spent time at the Naval Training Center, please share your most memorable moments here*.
