Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:

This M26A1 was a lend-lease tank returned to U.S. control in Italy. The museum acquired it from the Red River Army Depot at Texarkana, Texas, in October 1977. It had been converted from an M26 in 1952 at Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois, when its M3 gun had been replaced by an M3A1. It was intended that after it had been restored it would be put on display in Keyes Park.
