GALVESTON – The iconic Battleship Texas will make a milestone journey to Galveston on Wednesday from the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site, according to a news release.

Once in Galveston, the 105-year-old vessel will undergo an extensive $35 million repair at Gulf Copper & Manufacturing Corporation’s shipyard to fix the hull, the release states.

The project group dedicated to repairing the Battleship Texas includes the Battleship Texas Foundation, Valkor Energy Services and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

About the Battleship Texas

The ship was commissioned in 1914 and is the last big-gun battleship in the U.S. naval fleet.

The ship participated in some of the most significant naval battles in both world wars.

It carried soldiers home from across the Pacific following Japan’s surrender in World War II.

The Battleship Texas became the first battleship memorial in the United States when it was decommissioned back in 1948.
