History, Beauty and Charm--Downtown Evansville
A huge 45 acre shipyard complex was constructed on the riverfront east of St. Joseph Avenue for the production of oceangoing LSTs (Landing Ship-Tanks). The Evansville Shipyard was the nation's largest inland producer of LSTs. USS LST-325 is a decommissioned ship now home ported in Evansville as a memorial museum to LSTs and the city's war effort.
Downtown not only has history but a lot of beauty on the river front with old Victorian architecture and a beautiful river walk area as well.
