Just as the heritage park itself, the boats have interesting histories. One of the boats was assigned to the USS LaSalle, which in 1988, while in the Persian Gulf, assumed the role of Commander of Middle East Forces. The other boat was assigned to the USS Hunley, a submarine tender homeported in Charleston, South Carolina servicing the nuclear powered Polaris submarine fleet. The transportation service within the park will thus reflect the area’s military heritage.
