Glenesslin shipwreck on Neahkahnie Mountain 1913


9114-01 (00068)

Glenesslin shipwrecked at base of Neahkahnie mountain, Oregon. Photographed shortly after the October 1, 1913 shipwreck. Photograph by Henry Berger (a noted photographer who won the silver medal for photography at the 1915 world's fair).

This is one of the most famous shipwrecks on the Pacific Coast. The full masted ship was built in Liverpool in 1885, and set speed records that remain unequaled to this day. The ship became stuck in a windless pocket inside Cape Falcon, which stranded the ship, and it drifted into the rocks. The Captain of the ship, only 22 years old, and some of the crew were drunk at the time.
