"Interesting memorials" Top 5 Page for this destination Lexington Things to Do Tip by Pawtuxet

Lexington Things to Do: 27 reviews and 38 photos


It was Memorial Day and my husband is a career Navy man, so of course we spent time reading the memorial placques. There was a section beside the visitors' center which had an interesting collection of memorials. They were basically dedicated to every Navy ship ever named for the town of Lexington. They told the story of each of the ships and the years of service. Important battles, men who served on them, whether or not they survived battle. Interesting to think of how many times the name has been used.
