Description

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.

The exhibit opens officially on Friday, October 27, but you’re invited to join the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Woodrow Wilson House for an exhibit opening and special announcement about the Ghost Fleet of the Potomac on Mallows Bay.

When: Thursday, October 26 at 6–8p.m. Remarks at 7 p.m.

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.
