Mikasa is the last pre-dreadnought Battleship, USS Texas is the last dreadnought battleship, and Olympia is the last cruiser from that era. I think the USS Salem in Quincy, MA is the last big gun cruiser anywhere.

I think she is the last of the US boats. The Brits saved one of their 6" gun cruisers from WWII. And they have a WW I hull that was stripped down and would need to be completely refurbished.
