USS Alameda (ID-1432) was the proposed designation for an steamer that never actually served in the United States Navy.

SS Alameda was built as a commercial steamer in 1883 by the William Cramp and Sons at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During the participation of the United States in World War I, the U.S. Navy's 13th Naval District inspected her for possible World War I service, and she was registered accordingly with the naval registry Identification Number (ID. No.) 1432. However, the Navy appears never to have acquired or commissioned her.

Alameda remained in commercial use until she burned at a pier in Seattle, Washington, on 28 November 1931.
