This undated  photo, provided by the Independence Seaport Museum, shows the USS Olympia, a one-of-a-kind steel cruiser from the Spanish-American War, in Philadelphia. Since taking stewardship of the National Historic Landmark from a cash-strapped nonprofit in 1996, the Independence Seaport Museum has spent about $5 million on short-term repairs, inspections and maintenance but cannot afford to keep the ship.
