LST 325 to remain in Evansville

Jul 2, 2014

The LST 325 will remain in Evansville at least for the next five years. The City of Peoria extended its bid to land the historic World War II vessel last week. 

The City of Peoria is making a bid to have the LST 325 dock on its Riverfront. Peoria Public Radio’s Tanya Koonce reports:

The Council voted seven to four to extend an invitation to the LST Board, committing 500-thousand dollars to the project and pledging to assemble the remaining financing if the ship makes the move. That could amount to more than a million dollars.

Considering Peoria as a home for the LST 325

The Peoria City Council is gathering more information before it votes on the option to relocate the LST 325 on the riverfront. Some consider the idea a trifecta of sorts given the proximity of the Caterpillar Visitors Center and the Peoria Riverfront Museum.
