Site Description The Westmoreland sits very intact with its hogging arches on the bottom. The cabins have collapsed but the engine, vertical boiler, helm, horned rudder, early propeller, bilge pump, anchors, and a single cathead are extant on site. There are no doubt many artifacts and pieces of machinery in side and under the decks that are not visible in the model.
