The last surviving warship from the attack on Pearl Harbor

— "Saving One of America's Treasures" —

Open for visitors as part of the Baltimore Maritime Museum ... the USCGC TANEY was built in 1936 and was in continuous service until 1986. In addition to Pearl Harbor, TANEY saw action throughout World War II [as] well as the Vietnam Conflict. Peacetime duties included search and rescue, ocean weather station, fisheries patrol, and drug interdiction. Today, TANEY continues to serve as a tribute to seagoing services and as a "living classroom."

In 2003 TANEY underwent a major renovation at the Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay. The work begun there continues today. We would like to thank all those who made this restoration possible: Save America's Treasures (a program of the National Park Service), United States Coast Guard, Curtis Bay, General Ship Repair Corp., Middendorf Foundation, Hahn Foundation, Navy League of Baltimore, Chesapeake Coatings, Ameron International, Belzona, Moran Towing, Vane Brothers, Smith's Shipyard, Corman-Imbach Co., Neale Foundation, Propeller Club of Baltimore, USCGC Taney Association, USCGC Spencer Association, and all contributors to the CGC Taney Fund. ...
