The Department of War purchased a large part of the Commonwealth Flats in 1920, and split up the land between the South Boston Naval Annex and the South Boston Army Base. Rail service to the base was provided by Track 61.
World War II
During World War II, the base was used to warehouse and distribute military goods and supplies. After the war, activity declined and many buildings and structures on the base fell into disrepair.
Today, the former base is home to the various companies which have moved in over the years. Sail Boston has also used the land to host ships when they are in port as well, including former base land at the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal.
