Mallows Bay, located in the Potomac River, is the watery grave of hundreds of historic ships, most of which are wooden steamships commissioned in the midst of World War I and later scuttled when they proved to be obsolete by the end of the conflict.

Today it is both a wildlife sanctuary and historical monument – home to hundreds of vessels dating as far back as the Civil War and as recent as the 1980s.
