LST to be on display in Henry for Labor Day weekend

Posted by wlpo on September 1, 2011

You can visit a piece of American history while it’s docked in Henry for the Labor Day weekend.  An LST has traveled from Evansville, Indiana to Henry.

It’ll be open for tours from 9am-5pm Friday through Tuesday.  Bill Greek is one of the people responsible for bringing it to town.  He says they have many groups of students visiting the ship Friday and Tuesday.

You’ll find the ship docked on the Illinois River at the foot of the Route 18 bridge.   Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for kids, and $20 for families.  They will also have scrapbooks on display at the Henry American Legion.
