Called the ship that won the war by Churchill, the LSTs were essential in sea-to-land invasions and many were built in Evansville, Indiana. The LST 325 is 328 ft. long, 50 ft. wide and 1,625 tons of steel power. This floating piece of history was on site in Normandy on D-Day. She is also the "Last of the Class," meaning she is the only operational LST in existence. Tours are led by dedicated and learned crewmembers, some who served on LSTs. The LST 325 occasionally leaves port for cruises on other waterways. For admission and hours of operation, visit www.lstmemorial.org or call (812) 435-8678.
