The Kaiser St. Johns Shipyard is a location in the Eden Pond Series.


Located on in Portland, Oregon near the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers, The Oregon Shipbuilding Corporation's St. John's shipyard was known for producing Liberty and Victory Ships during World War II. Between 1941 and 1945, the shipyard built nearly 600 ships. During the war, it employed 35,000 workers, 30% of which were women[1].

Eden Pond worked here in several capacities from Fall 1942 through Spring 1943.
