Battleship Texas looks for new home

Beaumont — Representatives of the Battleship Texas Foundation are looking for a new home.

It’s closed for repairs while it sits near the San Jacinto Monument.

Galveston, Baytown and Corpus Christi have reached out. On Tuesday, the reps made a presentation to Beaumont City Council.

The cost of moving, logistics, and location are still up in the air.

Supporters say it would become a tourist attraction and its history would draw people to the Neches River and downtown Beaumont.
