American Legion’s Navy Gun Turret

IMG_4228What an amazing unexpected sight this was… an authentic WWII 5″ Gun Turret! As you may or may not know, when looking around for new blog ideas and hard-to-find attractions, I always walk around the sides and back of buildings never knowing what might be there. This time I hit the Jack Pot! Look at the photo below showing the EXACT gun on display here while on her original ship USS Kretchmer.

USS Kretchmer (DE-329) was an Edsall-class destroyer escort built for the U.S. Navy during World War II. She served in the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean and provided destroyer escort protection against submarine and air attack for Navy vessels and convoys.

You can find this ‘WWII Navy Gun Turret’ just outside of Key West at the American Legion (right hand side of building). Go to Mile Marker 4.3 turning bayside onto College Road and drive down about a 1/4 mile on your right, you’ll see it set back off the road a bit at 5610 College Road.
