Although some of us had not yet been born when the Second World War came to a close nearly 70 years ago, it is an important part of our nation’s history we will forever remember thanks to those who served. Located in Fall River, Massachusetts, Battleship Cove was founded by wartime crew veterans who fought on board the USS Massachusetts battleship during WWII. The ship, which had been decommissioned by the US Navy, was donated by the veterans group and put on display in August of 1965.
A Major Tourist Attraction
Today, Battleship Cove harbors the largest collection of preserved US Navy vessels in the world. Nestled at the confluence of the Taunton River and scenic Mount Hope Bay, Battleship Cove is also home to numerous museums and exhibits including the National PT Boat and National Destroyermen’s Museums and “Women Protecting US” exhibit. Since opening, Battleship Cove has become one of Southeastern Massachusetts’ most popular tourist spots, and has hosted more than five million visitors of all ages from across the globe. Offering a wide selection of educational and recreational programs including overnight visits for youth groups, resources for educators, as well as a community boating program, Battleship Cove is widely considered one of the region’s most valuable cultural assets and a leading historical destination.
