Few People Know About This Slowly Sinking Ship Wreck On The Oregon Coast

For decades, the wreck of the Mary D. Hume has been resting half-submerged near the mouth of the Rogue River in Gold Beach, Oregon. This historic ship was originally built in Gold Beach back in 1881. During her 97 years of service, the Mary D. Hume saw use as a tugboat, whaler, and coastal freighter. Today, she is slowly sinking.
