After almost 70 years, Newport News’s favorite ship still has some fight in her

The SS United States won’t take to open water again, but locals will be proud to hear that the Newport News-built leviathan was found in “remarkably strong structural condition” during its inspection for possible recovery options.  The ship’s conservancy society is currently looking into preserving it as a waterside attraction.  Donate here.
