DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas will soon be home to a new Maritime Museum that will feature the nuclear powered submarine the U.S.S. Dallas.

The proposed $80-million project, located in the Cedars neighborhoods on the banks of the Trinity River, includes a 30,000 square-foot museum facility that will house several historical vessels, a theatre and event plaza with three berths.

“The U.S.S. Dallas is the Navy’s second ship of that name, and the first to be named for the city of Dallas,”  said Rollie Stevens, Captain, USN (Retired) and president of the Dallas Maritime Museum Foundation.  “It’s a great honor that Dallas will be the final resting place for the our city’s namesake vessel.”

John Shellene, with the Dallas Maritime Museum Foundation, says Dallas would be the only place a nuclear powered submarine will be viewed entirely out of water by the general public.

After being in service for 32 years, the U.S.S. Dallas is scheduled to be decommissioned sometime in 2014 . The submarine gained notoriety when it was featured in the popular Tom Clancy thriller Hunt For Red October.
