On March 17, 1908,
while on its usual run between San Francisco and Fort Ross,
the SS Pomona struck rocks just south of Fort Ross and ran
aground just north of Fort Ross' Sandy Cove, where its
remnants remain to this day.
The SS Pomona is posted to
the National Register of Historic Places, and divers still
explore the wreck's remains.
The Fort Ross Visitor Center displays numerous artifacts
from the Pomona in its Visitor Center.
