Today I was in Seneca, Illinois on business and had the opportunity to visit the LST Memorial they recently dedicated there. Seneca was one of the many inland shipyards that built LSTs.

I have some pictures of it, but I don't know how to post them on here. Can anyone please give me some advice? Thanks!

The only thing I have been able to find on Seneca is very sparce. I have seen a few photographs, but my knowledge comes from maps and overhead images. Not to belittle the people of Seneca it looks like the most unlikely place to put a shipyard. I appears that it was just across the Tracks from a real cornfield.
Now if I counted correctly(have trouble when I run out of Fingers and toes) Seneca was just behind Evansville in hulls built.

So Jeff how about a trip report or observation of the Seneca area and experence. Maybe WEBSKIPPER can place it in the progress report with the Pictures

<font face="comic sans ms" color=navy size=4>There is no way that I can post on the website absolutely everything in the world having to do with LST's. There were numerous shipyards and even more LST's, not to mention their individual histories.
