We would like to take a moment to highlight one of the local treasures that as much more of a national and global connection…

Patriot’s Point Naval and Maritime museum is home to three Naval museum ships. The three ships are The USS Laffey a Naval destroyer, the USS Clamagore a Naval submarine, and the flagship offering the USS Yorktown. The USS Yorktown (CV/CVA/CVS-10) is one of 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers built during World War II for the United States Navy. She is named after the Battle of Yorktown of the American Revolutionary War, and is the fourth U.S. Navy ship to bear the name. Initially to have been named Bonhomme Richard, she was renamed Yorktown while under construction to commemorate USS Yorktown (CV-5), lost at the Battle of Midway in June 1942. Yorktown was commissioned in April 1943, and participated in several campaigns in the Pacific Theater of Operations, earning 11 battle stars and the Presidential Unit Citation.

Decommissioned shortly after the end of the war, she was modernized and recommissioned in the early 1950s as an attack carrier (CVA), and then eventually became an antisubmarine carrier (CVS). She was recommissioned too late to participate in the Korean War but served for many years in the Pacific, including duty in the Vietnam War, in which she earned five battle stars. Late in her career, she served as a recovery ship for the Apollo 8 space mission, and was used in the movie Tora! Tora! Tora! which recreated the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor; and in the science fiction film The Philadelphia Experiment.

Yorktown was decommissioned in 1970 and in 1975 became a museum ship at Patriots Point, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. She is a National Historic Landmark.

Patriot’s Point is only a 10-minute drive from the Oyster Park Luxury Apartments. The Patriot’s Point museum has much more than the three primary ship exhibits. There are also numerous other rich displays and offerings including 28 other naval aircraft and a Medal of Honor museum among other things.

Experiencing Oyster Park means soaking up all of the culture and opportunities in this great community. Be sure to take the time to plan a trip to see a piece of American history that lives right where you do. Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
