Yes, she's moored at Wilmington.
Japan has MIKASA, which was Admiral Togo's flagship at the Battle of Tsushima Strait. There is also the sailing frigate USS CONSTITUTION moored in Boston and the Spanish-American War cruiser USS OLYMPIA, Admiral Dewey's flagship at the Battle of Manila Bay. I don't remember where she's moored, however. The Russians have the 1905-built cruiser AURORA moored at St. Petersburg.
