Battleship Texas leaving San Jacinto Battleground for good over decline in visits



LA PORTE, Texas (KTRK) -- Battleship Texas, a 107-year-old relic of both World Wars, is set to pull up its anchors and depart from the San Jacinto Battleground.

Visitors have until the end of the year to book tours of the historic battleship before it is moved permanently from the Houston area.

Bruce Bramlett with the Battleship Texas Foundation said the main reason for the move is because it doesn't have enough paid visitors to maintain the ship.

"We need to get somewhere where there's a lot of people," Bramlett said.

1. Find a home first. Don't spend the money without a destination.
