I'm not sure what happened to the DDG-2 Historic site plans in Michigan, but it appears they fell through. A new team is in place to attempt to save the Charles F Adams DDG 2. I found this out at reunion - commissioning of new DDG from the tin can sailors. I will try to post update when I receive it.
