Rockwell Field

Rockwell Field was an Army air base located in Coronado, California, near San Diego. It shared the area known as North Island with Naval Air Station North Island from 1912 to 1935. Its functions were eventually moved to March Field so that the naval air station could take over the whole area. Historic and architecturally significant Spanish Colonial Revival style buildings from Rockwell Field are now the 'Rockwell Field Historic District of the North Island' base, and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Rockwell Field was also declared a California Historical Landmark for being the site of the first military flying school.
