This week, we received some very exciting news from the Oregon Coast. A mysteriously large wooden ship was found near Coos Bay, which is thought to be from the late 19th or early 20th century. Click here to read The World‘s full article (Coos Bay’s local newspaper).
If you are interested in history, shipwrecks or buried treasure, be sure to visit Coos Bay to witness this fascinating sight. Coos Historical and Maritime Museum will be placing historic ship photos on display, as well as various maps. Hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-4pm. Please call 541.756.6320 for more information.
Spinreel Dunebuggy Rentals, Inc. is also creating a waiting list for possible tours to the shipwreck site, as well as the site of the New Carissa. If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, get out there and view some living history!
Editor’s Note: Please be extremely cautious and respectful if you’re planning on visiting the wreck; the seas are high, and approaching the ship is extremely dangerous. Be sure to read up on beach safetybefore heading out.
