Last Wednesday at Patriots Point, volunteers from the Hampton Inn’s Save-A-Landmark® program donated their time and effort to refurbish the USS Laffey Destroyer. The ship, known as “the ship that wouldn’t die,” is part of the

Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum

. Employees from local Hampton Inns scraped and painted the interior of ship, enabling the Museum to finish a new exhibit inside the ship that will house artifacts from WWII. To nominate a landmark, you can visit
