As part of Navy Week festivities, the anchor of the decommissioned USS Duluth was brought to its final resting spot in the city bearing its name. 

It was carefully lifted off of a railroad car and onto a new memorial the Duluth Lakewalk Tuesday. 

Organizers say there are a few more things left to do, like landscape, touch-up, and installation of brass plates by the ship's crew. Also, some white seal-coating is going to be done when the rain lets up. 

A dedication ceremony will be held Friday afternoon.
