The 225-foot long steel-hulled coastal steamship Pomona sank off Fort
Ross cove on 17 March 1908 after hitting a submerged pinnacle. The shipwreck
lies in 30 feet of water and with its bow broken over the wash rock where it
eventually ran aground. Remains of the vessel on the seafloor include its
propeller shaft, boilers, hull plates and frames. A debris field surrounds the
wreck resulting from it being dynamited during salvage activities. The
Pomona is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
