USS Santiago de Cuba (1861-1865).
Originally the Civilian Steamship Santiago de Cuba

Santiago de Cuba, a 1567-ton (burden) wooden side-wheel steamship, was built in 1856 at New York City for commercial use. She was purchased by the U.S. Navy in September 1861, converted to a cruiser and commissioned as USS Santiago de Cuba in November 1861. Sent to the Gulf of Mexico area to enforce the blockade of the Confederate States and protect American shipping, she proved to be a very successful blockader. The first of her many captures was the schooner Victoria, taken in early December. During 1862 and 1863, Santiago de Cuba mainly operated in the western Atlantic, capturing several blockade runners, among them the steamships Columbia (on 3 August 1862), Victory (21 June 1863), Britannia (25 June 1863) and Lizzie (15 July 1863). For several months in 1862, she also served with a special squadron organized to search for the Confederate cruisers Alabama and Florida.

Following an overhaul between December 1863 and June 1864, Santiago de Cuba rejoined the blockade. She captured the steamer Advance on 10 September 1864 and the steamer Lucy in early November. During December 1864 and January 1865 she participated in the two attacks that ultimately captured Fort Fisher, North Carolina, thus bringing to an end most Atlantic Coast blockade running. USS Santiago de Cuba was decommissioned in June 1865 and sold at auction in September. She soon reentered commercial employment and operated as a steamship for the next two decades. She was converted to a barge in 1886 and renamed Marion. The old ship finally passed out of service in about 1899.

The Philadelphia Naval Asylum, later the Naval Home, was a hospital, the Philadelphia Naval School, and a home for retired sailors for the United States Navy from 1834 to 1976, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Located on over 20 acres (81,000 m2), the central building, Biddle Hall, was completed in 1833. Biddle Hall, the surgeon's residence and the governor's residence were all designed by architect William Strickland. They are considered some of the best examples of Greek Revival architecture in the United States.[by whom?] The site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1971.

One of the uses of the Naval Asylum was for the Philadelphia Naval School, an academy for midshipmen that was a precursor of the United States Naval Academy. Beginning in 1838, midshipmen approaching examinations for promotion were assigned to the school for eight months of study. William Chauvenet was placed in charge of the school in 1842 and formalized much of the study. When the United States Naval Academy was formed in 1845, four of the seven faculty members came from the Philadelphia school.

The name was changed to Naval Home in 1889. In 1976, the Naval Home relocated to Gulfport, Mississippi, after it was determined that the Philadelphia facility could not be economically expanded and modernized.

The property was sold to residential developer Toll Brothers in 1988. The main building was the victim of arson in 2003. It has since been restored and designed as luxury condomiums.
