Advocating for our community since 1994, the India Basin Neighborhood Association is a membership organization of local residents, property owners, business owners and workers, and friends with a mission to preserve the maritime history, natural beauty, diverse character, and unique ambiance of the vibrant mixed-use neighborhood of India Basin through community organizing.

The history of India Basin is a curious combination of industry and open space, business and pleasure. The name India Basin first appeared on a map in 1868, but theories as to its origin remain murky. The most unexceptional guess is that India Basin is named for the ships from the India Rice Mill Company, which docked there in the 19th century. But we suspect that it was so named because the water from nearby springs would stay fresh until a ship reached India.
