(Visited 17 September 2016) With its beginnings as the Naval School in 1845, the United States Naval Academy became a four-year school with sea-training during the summers in 1850. It has grown from its original 10 acres to its current 338 being home to about 4400 students and about 600 faculty members. There are several historic and interesting buildings, including the Chapel dedicated in 1908 as well as the U.S. Naval Academy Museum.
