Description

The Sagamore was a steel ship belonging to the Eastern Line Steamship Company. It was traveling from Portland, headed for New York, when a Northeast blizzard occurred on January 14, 1934. It ran onto Corwin Rock, some four miles off shore, and punctured a hole in the hull. It came ashore at Prout's Neck where the crew was saved as they were removed by the Coast Guard. The ship was carrying bolts of woolen cloth as part of its cargo.
