Drydocking of Battleship Texas gets boost
Psadena Citizen

November, 2009

The Battleship Texas Foundation donated $2 million to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department this week to go toward constructing a dry berth for the aging landmark vessel moored at the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site in La Porte.

The presentation by foundation Chairman Tony Gregory to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission is part of a foundation pledge of $4 million in private funds to match $25 million in Proposition 4 voter-approved bonds in 2007 to dry berth the Battleship Texas.
