Welcome to the website of the U. S. Coast Guard Historian's Office. We are proud to serve as the gateway to the study of our service's illustrious past. The Historian's Office collects, preserves, promotes and commemorates the Coast Guard's history and heritage in all forms, including the history and heritage of each of the five predecessor agencies that make up today's Coast Guard: the Revenue Cutter Service, the Life-Saving Service, the Lighthouse Service, the Bureau of Navigation and the Steamboat Inspection Service.
We hope that you enjoy your visit.
