Today, the Kidd rests high and dry on supporting blocks. During the year the river will rise and fall as much as 40 feet. To keep her in place the Kidd is attached to large mooring posts on the river side that allow her to rise and fall with the river.
The USS Kidd was never modernized and retains her WWII appearance. She has been loving restored by ex-navy volunteers.
