Nuclear Submarine in Kentucky

This article from The Kentucky Post, about a local school getting a submarine simulator, reminded me that the ex-USS Narwhal (SSN 671) will be moving to Newport, Kentucky in 2007. (Here's the rider attached to the 2004 Defense Appropriation Bill that made it possible.) If I remember right, this will be the only nuclear-powered submarine, other than the Nautilus, on display anywhere in the U.S. Of course, there are plenty of diesel boats being preserved as museum-type exhibits throughout the country; a partial list may be found here, which was linked from the excellent USSVI website.
