NAVY EVICTS MUSEUM FOUNDATION FROM POINT LOMA BASE

 

May 10, 2012 (San Diego)--Without warning, Captain S. F. Adams evicted the award-winning Fort Guijarros Museum Foundation from Naval Base Point Loma, just after stopping City buses from entering the base. The all-volunteer museum charged the Navy nothing for 30-years of public service. Abruptly, the Navy hired a private contractor to store the artifacts in a vault 30-miles north in San Pasqual Valley. News of the eviction was announced at the 34th Annual Battle of San Diego Bay Fiesta on Sunday, April 29, 2012.
