The Battleship Texas &  San Jacinto Monument
Soon after World War II, ownership of Battleship Texas, (last dreadnought in existence), was transfered to the state of its namesake to be used as state historic landmark. The battleship is now permanently moored near the San Jacinto monument - the site just east of Houston where Texas won her independence from Mexico in 1836. The San Jacinto Monument is 15 feet taller than Washington Monument making the world's tallest monument.
