A piece of our nation’s wartime history has arrived in Aurora, Indiana.

The LST-325, a World War II-era Navy ship, is now docked on the banks of the Ohio River. A memorial ship that honors former LST military vessels, the LST will be in Aurora through Monday as part of the community’s bicentennial celebration.

The ship will be open for public tours at various points throughout its stay.

Originally launched in 1943, the LST (or landing ship tank) was a part of Force B, the back-up force for troops going ashore at Omaha Beach in Normandy on June 6, 1944.

A large vessel once capable of carrying more than 20 Sherman tanks, the LST-325 is 50-feet wide, over a football field long, and weighs approximately 3,800 tons.

It’s currently docked at the Aurora Riverfront Ferry Landing, located off State Route 56.
