Battleship in OHIO river!!! Say What
I work at a riveside resturant that looks across the Ohio River.(which one of the bridges has been shut down do to a crack that is as old as the bridge itself) As i was sitting in shift meeting zoning out, I noticed a freaking battleship park right on the riverfront, Louisville Kentucky side. Why...have'nt been able to find any info on why it is there. I freaked out. the bridge closed...And needless to say my tows police forced is growing by the day. It seems they have more gold than King Solomon. Something is not right. Also any info on strange happenings in or around the area would be great. My cell sucks or i would have you a pic.

Re: Battleship in OHIO river!!! Say What
must be in Sin-Sin natti

can't be a battleship as in the "New Jersey" class that Reagan had refurbished or such, they are too big for a river, but must be a big boat ready for a battle. Curious if it is regualr US Navy or Coast Guard.

Are you sure it's not a boat there to help fix the Sherman-Minton Bridge? That's ok, I'm leaving the house to go downtown hopefully I'll be back with pictures.

i hope you can get some pics. i often see military planes and such but this is kinda crazy. I dont believe it is there for the bridge. it is going to take a few months just to fabricate steel for the bridge.

USS LST 325
U.S. National Register of Historic Places
Location: 840 LST Drive
Evansville, Indiana
NRHP Reference#: 09000434
Added to NRHP: June 24, 2009

USS LST-325 is a decommissioned tank landing ship of the United States Navy, now docked in Evansville, Indiana. Like many of her class, she was not named and is properly referred to by her hull designation (LSTs in service after July 1955 were named after U.S. counties and parishes).

The ship was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[1] The property was added to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) on June 24, 2009 and the listing was announced as the featured listing in the National Park Service's weekly list of July 2, 2009.[2]

[edit] Service history[edit] US Navy, 1942–1961LST-325 was launched on October 27, 1942, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The ship operated in the North Africa area and participated in the invasions at Gela, Sicily and Salerno, Italy. On June 6, 1944, LST-325 became part of the largest armada in history by participating in the Normandy Landings at Omaha Beach. It carried 59 vehicles, 31 officers and a total of 408 enlisted men on that first trip. On its first trip back to England from France, LST-325 hauled 38 casualties back to a friendly port. Over the next nine months, Navy records show LST-325 made more than 40 trips back and forth across the English Channel, carrying thousands of men and pieces of equipment that troops needed to successfully complete the liberation of Europe. The ship continued to run supply trips between England and France before returning to the United States in March 1945. LST-325 was decommissioned on 2 July 1946, at Green Cove Springs, Florida, and laid up in the Atlantic Reserve Fleet.

The ship was placed in service with the Military Sea Transportation Service in 1951 as USNS T-LST-325, and took part in "Operation SUNAC" (Support of North Atlantic Construction), venturing into the Labrador Sea, Davis Strait, and Baffin Bay to assist in the building of radar outposts along the eastern shore of Canada and western Greenland.

Struck from the Naval Vessel Register, on September 1, 1961, LST-325 was transferred to the Maritime Administration (MARAD) for lay up in the National Defense Reserve Fleet.

[edit] Hellenic Navy, 1964–1999LST-325 was sent to Greece on September 1, 1964, as part of the grant-in-aid program. She served in the Hellenic Navy as RHS Syros (L-144) from 1964 to 1999.

[edit] USS LST Ship Memorial MuseumThe USS LST Memorial, Inc., a group of retired military men, acquired the LST-325 in 2000. They paid their way to Greece, made the necessary repairs to the ship and sailed it back to the United States, arriving in Mobile Harbor on January 10, 2001. In 2003, LST-325 made a sentimental journey up the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. The 10-day stop in Evansville, Indiana, allowed more than 35,000 people to take a tour. In May and June 2005, she sailed up the east coast under her own power for a 60-day tour of several ports, visiting Alexandria, Virginia, and Buzzard's Bay, Boston, Gloucester, Massachusetts. LST-325 is one of the last navigable LSTs in operation in the U.S. Others include LST-510 in daily use as a ferry between Orient, NY and New London, CT, and the dredge M/V Columbia operating on the Gulf Coast. She is undergoing constant maintenance and restoration, and is in excellent shape, according to her crew. On October 1, 2005 Evansville, Indiana, became her home port (although this ship still visits other ports each year).

[edit] EvansvilleDuring World War II, the Evansville, Indiana, riverfront was transformed into a 45-acre (180,000 m2) shipyard to produce LSTs. At its peak, the Evansville Shipyard employed a workforce of over 19,000 and completed two of these massive ships per week, becoming the largest inland producer of LSTs in the nation. Although the Evansville Shipyard was originally contracted to produce 24 ships, 167 LSTs and 35 other vessels were built in Evansville. LST-325 is now home ported in Evansville as a memorial museum to LSTs and the city's war effort.

Re: Battleship in OHIO river!!! Say What
From my daughter who lives in Lexington, KY and drives through Louisville for work everyday. (I sent her OP's post and asked her if she knew anything about it)

"....I saw that too it was a huge ship that had flags on it from a bunch of different countries. It was parked near the bridge by the restaurant over looking the river. I thought it was a tourist attraction in town or sumthin lol...."

It is the LST 325 that has been on tour since August 28th. Her home base is Evansville Indiana when she's not out out tour. She is an operational museum. Well worthe the money to tour her & see history. It is an LST Landing ship Tank... not a battleship or any other kind of ship. Glad you found the article to explain it.
