USS Cod Submarine Memorial

Next to the Rock & Roll HOF you’ll find a World War II submarine that sunk 12 enemy vessels and became the first in the world to perform a submarine-to-submarine rescue. It’s now a National Historic Landmark that allows visitors to jump aboard and take a tour of an incredibly well-preserved piece of naval history, complete with a Mark-14 steam driven torpedo.

The USS Cod’s final resting spot in Cleveland is fitting since it’s also a birthplace of sorts: the submarine’s 5 diesel engines were originally built at the General Motors Cleveland Plant. While you’re there, don’t forget to pay your respects to all the honorable men and women who lost their lives in World War II.
