ALBANY, N.Y. -- A new exhibit was unveiled on Monday at the Albany Heritage Area Visitors Center.
The exhibit features a brass model of the U.S.S. Albany CG-10. The ship was in commission from 1962 to 1980. The model is 14 feet long.
Local leaders and former crew members were at the ribbon cutting.
"We're ecstatic to add this addition. It's vibrant, it's large, it's going to give people impressive views of what it actually was in 1958 when the Navy built it," said Wayne Van Amburgh, U.S.S. Albany Association Heritage Exhibit Chairman.
"It really broadens our sense of history and how important this ship has been since the early 1880s," Michele Vennard, Albany County Convention and Visitors Bureau President.
The newest model joins other models of the ship that were already a part of the exhibit.
