Island Road History | Chatham Place

Street of the Week: Chatham Place

Location: Runs north from Meadowmeer Circle

History: HMS Chatham was a 135-ton armed tender manned by a crew of 45 that sailed the ocean blue under Captain George Vancouver. The ship, considered small in naval terms, arrived in Port Blakely Harbor in 1792 where the crew found a quiet place to make repairs to their vessels.
