Ghost Fleet of the Potomac

Friday, February 09, 2018, 10:00am - 04:00pm

About The Event

Partially submerged in the waters of Maryland’s Mallows Bay, this abandoned fleet includes more than 200 shipwrecks, the majority of which date to World War I. To celebrate its legacy, the Woodrow Wilson House presents a new museum exhibit that explores the Ghost Fleet’s fascinating—and scandalous—history from salvage yard to nature sanctuary.

The Woodrow Wilson House is a national historic landmark and house museum that focuses on President Woodrow Wilson's "Washington Years." In 1921, after leading the nation through the first World War, President Woodrow Wilson moved to this elegant Washington home.

The townhouse, located in the capital’s Embassy Row neighborhood, was a quiet haven. As Washington’s only presidential museum, the Wilsons' home presents a fascinating glimpse into the life of an educator, scholar and world statesman.

The Woodrow Wilson House is owned and operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
